Air transport is intrinsically linked to global economic prosperity. Over four billion people now travel by air annually and air travel continues to grow at over five per cent a year. The MSc Air Transport Management course will provide you with the knowledge at the cutting-edge of your discipline; it will equip you with the multiple skills and expertise that are required to succeed in the ever-evolving business of air transport.
A minimum of a 2:2 UK honours degree, or a recognised equivalent international qualification.

"When you choose a masters course that you enjoy, at an institution that delivers it at an amazing quality, you naturally become motivated, driven and excited to learn."
I had already completed an MEng in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Surrey and throughout the years I discovered a hidden managerial ability within myself. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about a project’s big picture and connecting the dots between different parts of a project. I chose air transport management because the aviation industry is an extremely exciting environment. I chose Surrey because of its well-rounded course and capabilities that aren’t found anywhere else, such as their subscription to top-tier industry level databases such as OAG, Sabre MIDT and Cirium.
I chose this course simply because of the nature of air transport management and its global connectivity. It encourages you to learn about different countries, cities, people and cultures. There is a new story every day and if you’ve got an adventurous, global, problem-solving mindset, then air transport management is fuel to your fire.
The course always involves complex multivariable problems that involve areas such as: geography, politics, economics, law, finance, passenger psychology, tourism and infrastructure, to name a few. There is a different problem every day. I have never enjoyed anything as much as air transport management.

The staff are incredible – Programme Leader, Dr Frankie O’Connell is an extremely knowledgeable industry expert and all the academics are passionate about what they do.
Living in Guildford
I live in Cathedral Court and it was my favourite place of residence. It is calm, clean, quiet and 5 minutes away from any lecture theatre. It is also a 10-minute walk away from Tesco and a 15-minute walk away from the train station.
"Guildford is a beautiful and safe place to live, with lots of natural beauty around it. The University has a plethora of societies, from chess to dance to wakeboarding. Guildford is a lovely, cosy place and your time spent at Surrey will be unforgettable."

"There is never a dull moment in Surrey. I am enjoying the life here so far and looking forward to experiencing more."
"My course gives in-depth information about the aviation industry, covering topics such as air transport market analysis and forecasting, fleet planning, aviation ecommerce and aviation finance.
The modules are relevant and involve industry-related discussions, which allows me to better understand the trends and future of aviation. Although the student cohort is small, there is representation from over 15 countries, and the diverse contribution of experience and exposure by each student is what makes this course even better!
The academic staff are very experienced in the industry, tourism and sustainability. Visiting lecturers bring in industry experience and information about the most relevant systems used across the aviation field. Facilities used throughout the course are well maintained and we are given access to leading software and databases.
I am also a student ambassador and a member of the Sri Lankan society. This gives me the chance to meet new students, get involved and give back to the University while broadening my network and improving many skills.
I’m currently living in Manor Park University accommodation, which is well maintained and the help services are readily available and respond quickly. Since all the facilities you need are around the corner, you end up saving a lot of time which helps a lot, especially in an academic environment. So far the experience of living in accommodation has been great!
There are so many things that are great about life in Surrey such as London being only 30-40 minutes away, the friendly people of Guildford, and the diversity of the University community, which gives you the opportunity to experience all sorts of cultures.
My best moment in Surrey so far was getting selected for the Global Graduate Award in Sustainability. This free programme runs through two semesters, and allows students to enhance their knowledge of sustainability across a wide range of topics. As an important topic of global discussion, the opportunity to hear from experts in sustainability from a variety of fields has given me much insight about the issues and steps taken towards handling the challenges of achieving a sustainable future.
