After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with and be able to apply selected basic principles of air traffic (definitions, legal foundations, air traffic policy). They will be able to classify the functions of the global air transport system and illustrate their significance with examples and current key figures. Students will be able to divide the global aviation system up into "supply" and "demand" sides, name and assign the most important elements of the system (e.g. airlines, airports) to the respective side and describe their services/products/business systems in detail. They will have gained detailed insight into the demand/market side (product requirements, market stimulation, substitution competition and forecast of demand) of air traffic and will be able to estimate the continued development of global air traffic.
The introductory part of the module will provide knowledge about the legal basis and the institutions associated with air traffic, as well as the current air traffic policy. The second part will provide basic knowledge about the functions of the air transport system (ATS), in particular its economic function and ecological dysfunction (air transport and environmental protection). The module focuses on the supply and demand side of the ATS. The most important elements of the supply side: airlines, airports and the aviation industry will be described in detail by means of their services/products and business systems and illustrated with practical examples. The market side (product definition/requirements, market stimulation, substitution competition and forecast demand) will be illustrated by the current results of market analyses and evaluations. The module will end with a review of the key aspects of air transport policy.
The following topics will be addressed:
1. The basics
1.1. Systematization of air traffic
1.2. Institutions and organizations
1.3. Legal foundations
1.4. Air transport policy
2. Functions of the global air transport system
2.1. Political functions
2.2. Social functions
2.3. Ecological dysfunction
3. The supply side of the air transport system
3.1. Products (passage, freight, mail)
3.2. Airlines (business systems, strategies, alliances)
3.3. Airports (business systems, traffic performance)
3.4. Aviation industry (manufacturers, suppliers, financial service providers)
4. The demand side of the air transport system
4.1. Market segments (reasons for travel, product requirements)
4.2. Market developments
5. Selected focal points of air transport policy
