Over the last three decades since the reform, Chinese civil aviation industry has achieved sustainable and rapid development in several aspects including air transportation safety and delays, airport development, airline development and management, flight route layout, regulation enactment and general aviation support. As this industry continues to play an increasing role in Chinas socioeconomic development, China keeps emphasizing the development of its aviation industry, which has now become a major player in the world. However, this rapid development in aviation domain calls for further improvements and new challenges within two pillars of this industry: air transport and airport management.

As indicated, these programs aim at training highly skilled staff able to cope with new challenges faced by the Chinese aviation industry. They also intend to develop their own core management competencies and enhance the international competitiveness of Chinese aviation industry.
