Airport Master Planning

Professional Certificate Course
Delivery: Classroom
Duration: 5 days

Consistent with the objectives and orientations set out in the airport’s Business Plan, the course emphasizes the opportunities available to enhance airport capacity in a cost-effective, timely, and sustainable manner. The course will focus on the challenges of balancing differing service level requirements arising from differing airline business models, changing passenger mix, specialized cargo handling, and other non-aeronautical requirements such as third-party commercial service providers. The course will further explain how best to engage interested parties to identify issues that may have consequences for achieving long-term value for investors in airport assets and customers.
