You’ll find our course intriguing and intellectually challenging. We keep firmly up-to-date with current trends and changes within the industry to better prepare you for employment.

You’ll learn the fundamental elements of air transport management. Analysing and debating theoretical and applied knowledge in management, you will also learn about the operation and organisation of airlines and airports and the latest technology.
