Client testimonial
Deppy Sigala, Planning & Design Manager, Fraport Greece
This training covers a plethora of issues regarding Terminal design, and will be very useful in my role with Fraport. It covers the complete spectrum of Terminal design. I've found the most useful has been the calculations of processes. The Instructor shared real airport examples for every part of the theory, making it easier to grasp. Our class consisted of participants from various professional and cultural backgrounds, and their shared experiences were super interesting and helpful.
