About the course

4-day (32 hours) classroom course

Under the Chicago Convention, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has been mandated with the gathering of aviation statistics from contracting States since 1947. This data is used to derive trend level indicators to support the sustainable development of civil aviation activities, concentrating on safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

IATA gathers aviation statistics directly from airlines, supporting various airline industry initiatives while monitoring the industry's performance in terms of traffic, employment, financial results, environmental protection and safety. Statistical data are compiled by airlines, airports and civil aviation authorities applying international standards. Aviation statistics are widely used throughout the industry, ranging from monitoring global industry performance to detailed network planning and competitor benchmarking.

You will learn how to recognize the difference between the data gathered by different international organizations such as ICAO, IATA and Airports Council International (ACI). This data provides valuable information on global and regional industry trends, safety, environmental policy and the impact of regulatory changes that you will be able to leverage to give your organization a competitive edge.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
