The airport and airline sector has witnessed unprecedented growth during the last decade and the number of passengers passing through UK airports is set to increase from 229 million in 2015 to 450 million by 2030, according to the Department for Transport. This huge growth means that graduates with skills in aviation operations are highly sought after. The Fd Airport and Airline Management has been specifically developed in partnership with Swissport, the aviation ground handling specialist. It will broaden your knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues within this exciting sector, with specific reference to airport ground handling, customer service and managing people. You will have the opportunity to experience and engage in an array of roles, primarily landside positions but also taking in airside operations, and acquire the skills to progress into airport and airline management and airport administration.
