When we talk about Aviation sector, one of its key areas of operation is “Airport management”. All the airports are concerned about ensuring that their status gets enhanced that’s why they run the airport operation in a clinical and systematic manner. They give utmost importance to this aspect. From a passengers point of view their flying experience starts the moment they step inside the premises of an Airport, as they say first impression is the last impression. When a passenger finds that things are being handled in a professional manner in an airport, then the passenger feels more attracted towards repeatedly availing Air Services. So in this context surely Airport operation and management is extremely important, no denying from this fact. There are many airports which even have buildings to hold planes and passengers. A college park airport, in the city of College Park, Maryland, U.S., is considered to be the world’s oldest airport. It was established in the year 1909. Some key components associated with an airport are Runway, Taxiway, Control Tower, Terminal Building, Bay etc. India’s first airport was set up in 1928. The biggest airport in the World is “Beijing Daxing international Airport” situated in China.
