All airlines will have agreements with airports that outline the airline’s route structure. Discuss the core components of the airport impact within airline management, as it relates to practices of managerial planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling. Identify the airport impact from a gate lease, operations, seasonal contracts perspective, etc. as it relates to strategies designed to gain market share, increase product development, and penetrate new markets. Airline managers must be chosen carefully; many people fail to realize the key role they play in the survival of airlines. Just like with any other operation, an airline can suffer greatly from incompetent leadership. First and foremost, these people are the leaders for their teams. However, even though their job entails so much more, the managers still deal with day-to-day problems such as planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling. These leading managers also deal with some of the larger picture ideas of airports as well; they help infiltrate new business strategy to new clientele, gain market share, as well as aid in the lease, operations, and seasonal contracts in the airport. Any good manager already deals with the staff on duty. These staff need direction, input, and a solid plan to know where the company is going and where it currently is in the market.
