New book explores the global airline industry

June 19, 2009

June 20, 2009 - Reston, Va. - The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is pleased to announce the publication of a new book, The Global Airline Industry, available through AIAA's Library of Flight series. The book thoroughly analyzes today's rapidly changing air transport environment, with detailed coverage of air transportation economics, airline planning and operations, aviation's effect on the global environment, aviation infrastructure, aviation safety and security, industrial relations and human resources issues, and airline pricing and distribution.

A product of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Global Airline Industry Program, the book features input from authors on three continents, providing readers with a wide-ranging international perspective on the industry. It promotes a thorough understanding of the parameters within which the industry operates, as well as the strategies adopted to meet these demands, and will benefit students in air transportation and aviation management degree programs as well as professionals working in the industry.

The major topics addressed by this comprehensive and detailed analysis include:The Global Airline Industry is edited by Peter Belobaba, principal research scientist at MIT's International Center for Air Transportation and program manager for MIT's Global Airline Industry Program, with co-editors Cynthia Barnhart, associate dean for academic affairs for the MIT School of Engineering and professor of civil and environmental engineering and engineering systems, and Amedeo Odini, professor of aeronautics and astronautics and civil and environmental engineering at MIT.
