Travel, tourism and trade today represent the heartbeat of nations working to unlock future opportunity. Central to this is aviation - the major artery of globalization enabling markets and destinations to come to life, connecting geographies, cultures and commerce to enhance the lives of literally billions. For this reason is it critical that practitioners in Travel & Tourism, as well as Trade, understand how global aviation really 'works', both strategically and operationally. As an advisor in tourism development, IATA's Airline Business Foundation has proven to be a perfect course (for non-aviation and aviation people alike) to understand the fundamentals of airline industry development, design and decision making - essential knowledge to strengthen my own thinking around aviation-dependent tourism and trade development.

This was one of the most enthralling and enriching training experiences since the program began in 2012. The technique and procedure in the way the training was managed and conducted stood out and was more appealing than any other I have participated in. It was a pleasure knowing and learning from you and your experience in the aviation world, a great opportunity, and hope to do it again.

IATA’s Airline Business Foundations course was fantastic in providing an overview of the business practices within the aviation industry. It was highlighted how vital it is to take into account continuous change and note the key challenges currently faced. Our instructor was excellent in relating their wealth of experience to the topics and identified how airline business models aim to achieve to the elusive goal of profitability. I would highly recommend this course!
