Airport Economics – Commercial Management - CPI Partnership

September 2017

Concession Planning International (CPI) has been selected to develop a new training program on airport commercial management to be delivered by Airport’s Council International’s (ACI) Online Learning Centre.
CPI, one of the world’s leading airport commercial planning consultancy, will deliver all content for the organisation’s revised Certificate in Airport Economics – Commercial Management, which will be launched in early 2018.
The course incorporates several modules that address the fundamentals of the non-aeronautical revenue business at airports and forms an important part of the Airport Economics curriculum provided by ACI.
Susan Gray, Managing Director of CPI Australia, said: ‘’This course will be a fantastic introduction to the airport commercial world. There are many aspects of the airport commercial business that are unique to this industry. This course will be an excellent foundation for airport managers who would like to better understand the fundamentals of the non-aviation business.’’
Senior Manager responsible for the operation of ACI’s Online Learning Centre, Eddie Ragauskas, commented: “We are delighted to have CPI on board for this project. CPI’s experience, track record and thought leadership in this domain will ensure that airport personnel around the world will have access to the latest industry guidance and best practices with regards to airport commercial operations.”
Susan added: “We’ve had consistently positive feedback on the value that our courses are adding, so this new partnership with ACI is a perfect fit for us. We see the Certificate in Airport Economics – Commercial Management’s web-based, self-guided modules as the perfect precursor to more in-depth, hands-on course.’’
