Strategic Management and Policy in the Global Aviation Industry

Salim Kurnaz

The aviation industry presents a unique conundrum with the complex relationship between government oversight and business management. While the aviation industry operates in a business-oriented manner, a considerable number of aviation companies and airports worldwide are still government-owned. The COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated the pivotal role of governments in the industry, highlighting the need for a comprehensive understanding of this interaction, given the sector's massive economic influence and the extensive investment required. The need for an in-depth exploration of this liaison has never been more pressing. Strategic Management and Policy in the Global Aviation Industry offers an insightful and comprehensive solution to this enigmatic issue. This book delves into the dynamics of the aviation sector's reliance on government intervention and support, providing invaluable perspectives for academic scholars and industry enthusiasts. It explores the critical role governments play in the development and sustainability of aviation companies, especially in the wake of the pandemic, where governments worldwide stepped in to bolster their national aviation companies. Additionally, the book explores the industry's efforts to align with the United Nations' sustainability targets and the critical influence of government regulations in achieving these goals. It also dissects the digital transformation and the integration of innovative technologies in aviation, setting the stage for a more efficient and innovative industry. Furthermore, it unveils the burgeoning role of artificial intelligence in the quest for cost reduction and enhanced operational efficiency in the fiercely competitive aviation market.
