Course Overview

Aviation is a huge international industry. Airlines transported more than 4.5 billion passengers worldwide in 2019, while global cities, ‘mega-regions’ and emerging destinations are experiencing phenomenal growth in aviation development. New digital technologies are also being harnessed to create ‘smarter’ operations, conscious of the global environmental challenges society faces.
