Course content

Air transport is intrinsically linked to global economic prosperity. Over four billion people now travel by air annually and air travel continues to grow at over five per cent a year. The MSc Air Transport Management course will provide you with the knowledge at the cutting-edge of your discipline; it will equip you with the multiple skills and expertise that are required to succeed in the ever-evolving business of air transport.

Our School of Hospitality and Tourism Management is one of the best in the world, being ranked in the top 10 globally by the QS World University Rankings 2020. You’ll benefit from our pioneering research and analysis, as well as our unique proximity to Heathrow and Gatwick airports, that serve over 120 global airlines. This has allowed us to develop outstanding links with the industry, generating numerous guest speakers who deliver engaging and stimulating lectures.

The course has been designed in close collaboration with industry professionals, to develop future air transport leaders that are innovative, principled, and thought-provoking.

On our intriguing and intellectually challenging MSc Air Transport Management course, we keep firmly up-to-date with current trends and changes within the industry to better prepare you for employment.

Throughout your studies you’ll learn about the fundamental aspects of air transport management, as well as analyse and debate theoretical and applied knowledge. You’ll also learn about the operation and organisation of airlines and airports and the latest technology.

This is the only air transport management course in the UK that will allow you the opportunity of using all three commercial software packages used by airlines and airports today, including: OAG, MIDT (Sabre) and Cirium (Flightglobal). These tools are essential for analysing airline data and will give you a competitive edge with employers.

During the summer months, you will produce a dissertation that researches a specialist topic, picked by yourself, which will lead to an in-depth knowledge of this subject.
