Foundations of Airline Finance: Methodology and Practice is a textbook that comprehensively covers, at a basic level, all aspects of the subject, bringing together many of the numerous and informative articles and institutional developments that have characterized the field of airline finance in the previous two decades. In the early chapters, the reader is introduced to the elementary theoretical foundations that underpin the role of finance in the airline industry. Critical topics, such as the time value of money, the notion of risk and return, and the complex nature of costs (fixed, semi-fixed, variable, and marginal) are discussed and illustrated with concrete examples. This is followed by an in-depth presentation of the role of accounting in airlines. Ratio analysis is used to further analyze airline financial statements. Airline industry specific metrics, such as cost per available seat mile (CASM) and revenue per revenue passenger mile (RRPM), are covered. The role of capital and asset management is then explained in the following chapters. The final chapters of the text present some important practical applications of the theoretical ideas presented earlier; these applications include hedging, the buy versus lease decision for aircraft and the question of the valuation of assets (mainly aircraft). Moreover, specific methods for actually calculating internal valuation are presented and evaluated. Foundations of Airline Finance: Methodology and Practice will be of greatest value to students who are contemplating entering financial management in the air transportation industry; however, the text will also serve as an accessible and comprehensive reference for industry professionals.

This book is an accessible, up-to-date introduction to the current state of the aviation industry which provides readers with the tools necessary to understand the volatile and often complicated nature of airline finance.

For all engineers and practitioners, it is essential to have a fundamental understanding of cost structure, estimating cash flows, and evaluating alternative projects and designs on an economic basis. Engineering Economics for Aviation and Aerospace provides the tools and techniques necessary for engineers to economically evaluate their projects and choices. The focus of this book is on a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practical applications of engineering economics. It explains and demonstrates the principles and techniques of engineering economics and financial analysis as applied to the aviation and aerospace industries. Time value of money, interest factors, and spreadsheet functions are used to evaluate the cash flows associated with a single project or multiple projects. The alternative engineering economics tools and techniques are utilized in separate chapters to evaluate the attractiveness of a single project or to select the best of multiple alternatives. Most of the engineering economics and financial mathematics books available in the market take either a pure theoretical approach or offer limited applications. This book incorporates both approaches, providing students of aviation and industrial economics, as well as practitioners, with the necessary mathematical knowledge to evaluate alternatives on an economic basis.

This book provides an introduction to, and demystification of, the private and public dimensions of international aviation law. The air transport industry is not governed by a discrete area of the law but rather by a series of disparate transnational regulatory instruments. By combining classical doctrinal analysis with insights from newer disciplines such as international relations and economics, the book maps international aviation law's complex terrain for new and veteran observers alike.

The travel industry has been through exceptional upheaval and change. Plunkett's Airline, Hotel & Travel Industry Almanac will be your complete guide to this fascinating industry. After reeling from the effects of the September 11, 2001 tragedies, the travel business is now emerging as a more streamlined, efficient and focused industry. Many of the biggest, most successful firms are becoming extremely global in nature. Meanwhile, most airlines are struggling to return to profitability, while low-cost providers Southwest Airlines and JetBlue continue to set the standard for air travel. Deregulation is opening up huge travel markets in India and China. On the hotel side, massive management firms, development companies and real estate investment trusts are gaining in scale and influence. The booking of travel online is perhaps the most successful niche of all of the world's e-commerce efforts. Consumers use the Internet to become better informed and to seek bargains. Online sites like Travelocity, Priceline and Orbitz steer millions of consumers toward specific airlines and hotels in a manner that lowers prices and improves satisfaction among consumers. The exciting new reference book (which includes a fully-featured database on CD-ROM) will give you access to the complete scope of the travel industry, including: Analysis of major trends; Market research; Statistics and historical tables; Airlines; Hotel operators; Entertainment destinations such as resorts and theme parks; Tour operators; The largest travel agencies; E-commerce firms; Cruise lines; Casino hotels; Car rental; and much, much more. You'll find a complete overview, industry analysis and market research report in one superb, value-priced package. It contains thousands of contacts for business and industry leaders, industry associations, Internet sites and other resources. This book also includes statistical tables, a travel industry glossary, industry contacts and thorough indexes. The corporate profile section of the book includes our proprietary, in-depth profiles of over 300 leading companies in all facets of the travel industry. Purchasers of either the book or PDF version can receive a free copy of the company profiles database on CD-ROM, enabling key word search and export of key information, addresses, phone numbers and executive names with titles for every company profiled.
