One-Day Immersion Programme for Airline Executives

In partnership with Hahn AirHitit and AerCap

29 March 2023  |  Johannesburg  |  Protea Hotel OR Tambo

The implementation sessions for the three critical areas for airlines, who are focusing on developing the resilience required for their businesses, are around the corner: Wednesday, 29 March 2023 to be precise.

The one-day immersion experience is designed for airline executives who are responsible for these critical areas: 

1.  Revenue ManagementGenerating income for the business as efficiently and effectively as possible
2.  Fleet PlanningIdentifying and sourcing the aircraft required for the best fit to the business plan and model
3.  Network PlanningOperating to destinations that bring the best results to the business

Our objective is simple: give our Members all the support they need to achieve their business survival and growth objectives.

 L  Facilitators

We have assembled a team of experienced people who are very keen to impart their knowledge to the participants while engaging them in meaningful and practical methods, enabling them to implement what they have learnt when they get back to their organisations. 

The subject matter experts who will be facilitating the Implementation Sessions have invaluable experience and insights – they have gone through similar challenges in their careers. They are collaborating with AASA to impart their experiences and knowledge for the benefit of the participants. 

Our facilitators will assume that the participants already have a certain level of experience and exposure. The practical exercises that they will give to the participants will require application of the principles taught in the sessions. 

Learn, Do, Adjust, Do. This is how the sessions will be managed. Learn from the best. Do what needs to be done. Adjust your processes as required. Do what needs to be done.

The Facilitators provide the resource our Members need: 

  • Mr. Jerome Simelane (Revenue Planning, Scheduling & Airline Partnerships Specialist). Generating income for the airlines Jerome has worked with (including SAA, SA Express and Fly Blue Crane) is his passion. Expect to hear the latest trends from him. A straight talker, he will give you insights to take back to your work.
  • Mr. Sean Mendis (Airline Executive, Author and Visionary Changemaker). Sean will facilitate the Aircraft Fleet & Leasing overview.
  • Mr. Orhan Sivrikaya (HITIT Business, Scheduling & Network Planning Specialist). Orhan, who excelled in Network Planning at Turkish Airlines and HITIT, will be facilitating the Network Planning session.  The correct network decisions enable the airline to achieve its objectives. 
  • Mr Phillip Collings (Hahn Air Director of Corporate Sales). Phillip will participate as a Supporting Facilitator regarding the importance of Distribution and Retailing in the Revenue Management session.

    Time is now

Each airline member should nominate one person per module – that means one person for the Revenue Management session, one person for the Fleet Planning session, and one person for the Network Planning session. 

AASA in conjunction with its partners will cover the costs of the sessions, the meals, and all the material that will be handed out. Your investment is the cost of transport and or lodging for those who will be coming from out of town.

     Who should attend?

We recommend that our Airline Members nominate their participants from the following areas:

  • Revenue Management Managers
  • Network Planning Managers
  • Fleet Planning and Performance Managers
  • Sales Channels and Distribution Managers
