B.B.A. AVIATION MANAGEMENT

Aviation-related careers are not confined only to pilots. There are a huge number of other jobs that are necessary to keep air travel moving safely. An aviation management degree provides a broad range of skills, both technical and managerial, that prepare individuals for long-term careers in airline and airport management.

The government owned Airports Authority of India (AAI) operates 126 airports and civil enclaves out of a total of 449 airports and airstrips located throughout India. Around 80 airports/aerodromes receive regular commercial flights. The cities of Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi and Mumbai are served by privately (or joint-venture) operated airports. Airports in India handled 295 million passengers in 2017. India is the fifth largest civil aviation market in the world behind the USA, China, Japan and the United Kingdom.

Worldwide, airlines carry more than 3 billion passengers a year and deliver about one-third of traded goods by value. Aviation-sector employment also is seen as strong. Airlines employ about 2.5 million workers and expect to accelerate the pace of hiring over the next year,the association reported in June 2015.

To work for a major airline carrier, an international airport, a government agency or a general aviation service provider, a bachelor’s degree in aviation management can provide the foundational and specialized knowledge needed to succeed in a range of careers including Airport managers, Airport Operations Manager, Airport planners and Air Cargo Managers.
