What the Course is About

The Service Excellence in Aviation course is an introductory level course that provides participants with a basic understanding of what is service excellence within the airport and airline industry, the benefits of embracing a service excellence culture and how this can be implemented in day-to-day experiences within the aviation business scenario.

Whilst customer service is all about meeting customer needs, service excellence is all about meeting and whenever possible, exceeding those needs and expectations, on a consistent basis. Nowadays service excellence is becoming an expected feature within any service industry and this also applies for the aviation industry.

Service excellence is inherent in each ‘moment of truth’ taking place at every point of the passenger journey starting from the airport and continuing onboard the aircraft. Being aware of the different passenger needs and expectations and being ready to compensate for any encountered pain-points will assure passenger loyalty and engagement. The customer is to be happy with the experience itself and this will be imprinted as a positive ‘brand’ memory linked to that airport or airline.

An active learning approach is taken by examining specific case-studies and discussing best practice ideas both from this sector and from leading experts in other service-based industries.

Upon course completion, an online assessment must be successfully completed by participants in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.
