In addition to explaining the fundamentals, this book now takes the reader to the leading edge of the discipline, using past and present trends to forecast future challenges the industry may face and encouraging the reader to really think about the decisions a manager implements. The Sixth Edition contains updated material on airline passenger marketing, labor relations, financing and heightened security precautions. Arranged in sharply focused parts and accessible sections, the exposition is clear and reader-friendly. "Air Transportation" is suitable for almost all aviation programs that feature business and management. Its accessible structure and style make it highly suitable for modular courses and distance learning programmes, or for self-directed study and continuing personal professional development."@en ;
