Aviation Management can open the door to many career opportunities in the professional side of aviation, airlines, and airports. As a graduate of the Aviation Management degree programme, you can work for airlines or for handling companies, aircraft manufacturers, or maintenance companies. This degree is the ideal foundation for positions in management, security, and operations for passenger airlines or cargo carriers.

Yield Manager

You may have noticed that fares vary from day to day and from time to time. The reason: In order to work cost-effectively, airlines want to occupy all seats in the aircraft at the beginning of the ticket sales phase. So, there are often early bird discounts long before the departure date. If the costs are covered and there are still seats left, the company can sell the remaining seats for more money and make even more profit. If the flight is not fully booked until shortly before departure, ticket prices will fall again to exhaust existing capacity. The yield manager is responsible for making sure that this process runs optimally and the airline generates as much revenue as possible. 

Network Manager

As a network manager, you create and optimise the flight plan for an airline. You make sure that the offered route network of your airline is as profitable as possible. You keep an eye on developments, plan well in advance, and identify new market potential. You analyse under which conditions new airline markets could be useful. You examine which routes that are profitable and those that are less economical for your airline in order to expand or remove routes from the programme. One of your tasks is also submitting applications for time windows for take-offs and landings at airports.
