Air Transportation Economics was one of the best courses we have ever attended. The training center, materials and facilitation were excellent. It was very inspirational, bringing lots of ideas, with both theory and some exercises. We had the opportunity to learn from the instructors' experiences and from the other participants, which contributed to interesting and focused discussions.
