For the first time ASM, the world route development consultants, are running a training course in the CIS region.
This inaugural CIS programme gets off to flying start with not one, but two courses being held in St. Petersburg; The Fundamentals of Route Development, February 5th-6th 2013 and a Traffic Forecasting Masterclass, February 7th-8th 2013.
ASM has over 15 years experience in running the industry’s most recognised and highly regarded route development training programmes for airports and organisations interested in making route development happen.
Both of these courses are aimed at route development professionals at all levels and the promise of cold weather in St Petersburg in February has not deterred the delegates.
Currently eight delegates are booked onto each course with representation from several countries and ten different airports.
It is symbolic that the location for the first ever CIS based training is St. Petersburg given that ASM has completed two very successful projects with St. Petersburg International Pulkovo Airport in the past.
ASM provided overall support and played an important role in attracting Emirates to St. Petersburg.
ASM were also appointed as traffic advisor to the regional government as part of the privatisation of St. Petersburg.
This was the first Public Private Partnership in the aviation sector in the region and one of the first within all sectors in the region.
“The CIS region is an exciting market for ASM as there is a lot happening right now,” said Tony Griffin, senior vice president ASM.
He further explained: “ASM has extensive experience of the CIS market and this is a great opportunity for route development professionals in the CIS to get together as well as further develop their skills & knowledge of their industry.”
