This paper focused on prioritisation of certain ground vehicles and improving the turnaround time of airplanes at the airport. This leads to acceleration of ground operations at the airport. Key indicators to measure delay and improvement within the system are the non-operation period of an airplane. Depending on the increasing number of passengers in the next few years, it is necessary to shorten this time and accelerate the processes of handling operations. The built conceptual model contains all necessary processes relating aircraft and ground vehicles and their movement. Based on the conceptual model a rough calculation was developed. The simulation model will be based on the rough calculation, therefore. Through the evaluation of gained data, new insights and new ideas for future simulation studies will be produced.
