Airline operations are defined as the functional areas which are directly associated with the operation of the aircraft and in the provision of services for aircraft operation. All aviation professionals need a thorough understanding of the operational aspects of the airline business. Airline Operations Management is a broadly based course that is designed to cover the range of technical functions within a scheduled airline operation. The course introduces students to each aspect of airline operations and emphasises the integrated nature of operations required to achieve safe and efficient outcomes.
This course provides an overview of airline operations within the highly regulated environment that includes flight operations, flight standards, fleet management, crew training, network operations, cabin crew operations, ground operations and aircraft maintenance. The course will also look at the relevant air transport regulation, air traffic management and appropriate business models. Students will work individually and in small teams to gain an understanding of planning, coordinating, and controlling an airline in the context of a commercial environment.
