4.12 TYPE OF ORGANIZATION
The many different organizations in the aviation industry are highly dependent on each other for the provision of various services, and many of these relationships are strategic in that the various organizations help each other to cut costs and ensure that profits are maintained at a high level. Most airlines normally do their own ground handling but this is normally limited to the airlines hubs and hence these highly essential services need to be outsourced to other companies that have specialized in ground handling services. This outsourcing not only saves on the time it would take to have these ground handling subsidiaries operational in each and every airport that the airline uses but it also saves on the colossal costs of actually buying the required equipment, getting the right personnel and training them as well as receiving the requisite certification and authorization to actually run their ground handling operations at that airport. Strategic outsourcing of these services is thus carried out such that these ground handling services are outsourced to other airlines or ground handling companies. For example most airlines in alliances normally outsource these services to other airlines within the same alliance that already has a presence in that particular airport which may then be further outsourced to a ground handling company.
