Course description

Regional and Low-Cost Air Transport

Low-cost airlines, together with regional carriers using small aircraft have been the fastest growing sectors of the aviation industry in recent years. These are characterised by their use of less congested airports away from the major hubs. Such services are often underdeveloped in comparison with the trunk routes and many new markets are being opened up. Good air transport links are also of vital importance to the economy of a region. This seminar considers some of the roles that regional and low-cost air services can fulfil and addresses the challenges in realising this potential traffic.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The seminars have been designed to appeal to a wide range of participants. In particular, they aim to bring together airline and airport issues for mutual benefit. They will be of interest to airline and airport planning and marketing managers, aviation and planning specialists from regional and national government, aircraft manufacturers and consultants who are working in the field of air transport.
