AMPAP mandatory course
Delivery: Hybrid – virtual and self-study
Duration: 4 weeks

The Airport Business Planning and Sustainability (ABPS) will provide an understanding of the effective ways that airports strategically plan for future customer needs and anticipated regulatory requirements and facilitate stakeholder relations based on a balanced set of economic, environmental, and social priorities.

ABPS commences with explaining the ICAO and ACI sustainability principles and the many related programs that are to be adopted by airports in partnership with the civil aviation industry in the coming decades.

The course will also explain the ICAO Master Plan concept and how airports undertake an integrated system planning approach to address needs identified in the business planning process. This circular process to establish a viable strategic Business Plan demands significant attention to the changing regulatory environment that must address not just traditional technical, safety, and security priorities.
