Demand Analysis and Capacity Management
|Location||Marylebone, Central London|
|Faculty||Architecture and the Built Environment|
This short course aims to address key demand and supply issues in air transport, assess forecasting methodologies and discuss future strategies.
The air transport world faces major challenges at the current time in addressing volatile fuel prices while catering for demand which is rising again, following the recent recession in many markets. A number of principal airports are severely congested while the airline industry remains fiercely competitive. A thorough understanding of the nature of demand coupled with the knowledge of how to effectively manage capacity will be essential for success in this fast-changing commercial environment.
Who is this course for?
We have designed the course to appeal to a wide range of participants, and will consider both airport and airline aspects of air transport.
The course is ideal for airline executives, airport managers, aviation specialists in government departments, analysts from aircraft manufacturers and consultants working in the field of air transport.
