ASG working on the virtual site Zintro – see their article about us

Stuart Matheson, an aviation management consultant, offers support services to airlines, airports, and allied suppliers. Matheson received a Zintro inquiry from a client looking to create a military dashboard for marketing reasons. The client wanted a dashboard solution for war or crisis and needed an expert with experience who could describe KPIs. Matheson sent a proposal and got the contract.

“I provided an insider perspective to the client’s product development team and was able to offer an overseas perspective without having the expense of travelling to meet the client. Zintro offers the ability for both client and consultant to window shop without commitment, prospecting without the element of cold calling which can be difficult,” says Matheson. “The Zintro system is good for client and consultant as it takes care of the payment process and allows the parties to match skills easily to the task.

2012 & ASG Heading for Expansion

As 2012 begins, here at ASG we are busy developing links with other consultancies, whilst building our client portfolio

ASG continue to offer great audit, training and operational management support to our clients around the world

both in the UK and overseas.

Our first co-operative deal will be with Aviate Consulting – a successful new aviation company with offices in the UK and US, with a very similar product offering as ASG.  By working together it will provide a wider choice of service for customers as well as increasing the depth of knowledge and experience of the two companies.

ASG & Smart Handling have delivered top ranking ground support to easyJet

In 2011 we saw a steady work stream, dealing with restructuring of a number of aviation businesses as well as optimisation of existing operations.  Our continued contract with Smart Handling by Servisair has seen the successful completion of the first year of operations for this new ground handling brand.  The 2 airports where Smart operates have delivered performance resulting in Newcastle and Liverpool holding number 1 and 2 in the easyJet performance table.

“We have alot to look forward to in 2012, ” explained Stuart Matheson, ASG’s Managing Director.  “With the recent IATA training contract and ISO audit accreditation we are expanding our market offering and seeking new clients”

ASG operate throughout the world, working with airlines, airports and suppliers to ensure a safe, profitable and secure business platform for our clients and their staff.

ASG Recruiting NOW!!

ASG are recruiting 2 key roles for 2011.  The company is based in the UK with clients in all parts of the world.  Providing consultancy, planning and training to airports, airlines, ground handlers and other third party suppliers, ASG has been in business for 4 years.

“We have seen steady growth throughout and have had some loyal customers in that time,” explains Stuart Matheson, Director.  “Businesses need a partner they can trust and we provide that.  All of our team have operational experience and we are keen to ensure we not only deliver the ideas, but the operational delivery too.”

ASG have a number of on-going contracts and has recently worked for non-aviation clients.  Running a multi-facet aviation business has many parallels with other industries and clients recognise many of the skills we use everyday in aviation are ideally suited to their businesses.

Aviation continues to grow in various areas of the world

The TWO positions available are for a Business Development Manager and an accomplished Aircraft Leasing Executive.  More details on the positions can be found at our website and we are looking to recruit quickly.  If you are the right candidate, contact us.

ASG – Aviation Security Expertise For the Real World

Following the recent security alerts across the world, the airline security industry has gone into overdrive as they encourage  government avsec departments to mandate the use of x-ray and other detection devices on cargo flights.

UPS - Quick to act on recent security alert

As we have seen over the past 10 or so years of heightened security requirements, some of the measures have been counter-productive in the overall scheme of things.  There can be no denying that a great leap forward occurred with the AAA regulations requiring all baggage to be reconciled with the passengers on-board.  However, I remain at a loss as to why liquids are limited to 100ml although the number of individual 100ml units is not restricted.  Likewise, why do we need to remove our laptops at the x-ray despite the fact that the machines are perfectly capable of scanning through laptop bags.  We must hope that the ban on toner cartridges does not implicate every photocopier engineer in a terrorist plot!

ASG have been involved at the strategic and operational levels at airports across the world,

Airports have to operate safely but the public also want speed and ease of service

and for many of the industry users themselves.  We urge a considered approach to the mandating of any new requirements, and whilst we always advocate the highest security and safety for the industry and public, we would remind the decision makers that aviation needs to operate safely, on-time and profitably in order to survive.  A considered and consistent approach is necessary – do not confuse increased bureaucracy with better security measures.

ASG are working with airlines and third party industry suppliers in planning their contingency and emergency planning programs, as well as assisting in the operational solutions required to facilitate higher security and maintain their daily business.

We can be contacted by email at or by telephone on +44(0)7946 017115
