Airport Management

Airport managers plan, direct, and coordinate activities concerned with the day-to-day operation of airports including following governmental agency policies and regulations as well as construction and maintenance of airport facilities. Airport managers tend to have a well-rounded skill set and understand public relations, economics, business management, civil engineering, personnel management, labor relations, and politics in addition to policies and regulations. They often oversee people in the areas of human resources, facilities, public relations, planning and engineering, operations, security, and aircraft rescue/fire fighting.
