In today’s aviation industry professionals working at airlines, airports and related organisations require the ability to understand and manage the processes that connect the stakeholders at an airport. The Aviation Logistics course focuses on the processes that take part around an aircraft, being air cargo, passenger, baggage and the turn around. The different aviation stakeholders will be addressed and what their importance is for establishing an efficient flow. The ability to create a bird’s eye perspective and understand the interconnectedness of the processes play a crucial role in the success of aviation professionals that are active in passenger-, baggage-, cargo- and aircraft flow at the airport. Organisations demand that professionals can make decisions based on understanding of the operational processes. This requires professionals that are able to connect the activities and KPIs to the process and translate the results to what is relevant for the management and operations.
In this course you will learn about the relevant aviation processes with their respective KPIs, how the processes are related, which stakeholders are involved and how these are managed. The lecturer shares real-life examples from the past years and ideas of the industry thought leaders.
