Ground Transportation & Terminal Operations Virtual Training

September 22 | 10 a.m - 4 p.m. ET | LIVE ONLINE TRAINING



An often-overlooked element of airport management is landside. The ground transportation, parking, and intermodal interface portion of the airport can bring in a tremendous amount of revenue for the airport – in some cases, airports can earn 1/3 or more of their revenue through parking operations alone. However, there is very little information on how to design, manage and maintain landside operations effectively. This course provides an in-depth analysis of the ground transportation and parking facilities elements of airport management. Learn how to be an effective landside manager, manage a successful landside revenue program and the challenges associated with Transportation Network Companies, as well as the future of ground transportation.
