Any Book Recommendations On Airline/Aiport Ops?

Sun Dec 05, 2004 10:30 am

I wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations for books relating to Airline/Airport operations. Any books to avoid?

Even if the book is a textbook for an Operations Research/MBA class or the like, I would still be interested.

On amazon.com, I found "Airline Operations and Scheduling" by Bazargan, and "Airport Operations" by Ashford, to name two.

these are the two books i've used so far, both textbooks.

Airport Operations - Ashford, Staton, Moore
ISBN: 0-07-003077-4

Airport Planning & Managment - Wells, Young
ISBN: 0-07-141301-4

i have found a few instances in the second book where there are errors in important information. still waiting on a response from the publisher. if you can get your hands on the ICAO (or was it IATA) book then you're in luck too. that's got every single reguation in them. hard to come by though.



as for the airline ops, the only book that you should be looking for (in my opinion) is Air Carrier Operations by Holt and Poynor. ISBN: 0-8138-0788-3. i, as well as quite a few of my professors find that to be the best book for the subject.

Cancidas thank you for your response.

It sounds like your currently studying this topic. What type of course/degree are you working towards? What school?
