Course Benefits

  • The footprint of deregulation, privatization and globalization is apparent in the contemporary civil aviation environment. Over the past few years, the intensification of competition has led to lower fares and/or to better service quality. The most popular routes benefited largely from this trend, as the traditional carriers had to fight the newly established low-fare airlines. The latter have also developed a new relationship with airports flying to previously non-served areas empowering the regions and rewriting the terms of accessibility.
  • This course examines and analyses the main and auxiliary principles of aviation economics in an integrated way and stresses their importance as a factor of airline success. Theory is complemented with examples and case studies to assist the participants in understanding and applying constructively aviation economics techniques in their workplace.
