Airports are critical transport infrastructures supporting different tight interdependent operations that must be properly coordinated to avoid delays on the departures. A sustainable air transport system requires that the strategic planned departures could be preserved at operational time, to avoid downstream overcapacity problems at the airside. In this paper it is introduced some of the perturbations that affects the aircraft turnaround time and the importance to improve the robustness of those operations, which are more sensible to uncertainties generating departure delays. A new boarding MAS algorithm based on a socio- technological system approach is presented, removing some barriers in its deployment.
