Summary "Anyone becoming a new company director faces a steep learning curve; this book will give the director of an airline a head start. This book reviews the elements of corporate governance and puts them into the context of guiding and managing an airline, and also complements the discussion of accounting and finance in its sister book Airline Management Finance: The Essentials. These discussions will give directors confidence in governance and finance, avoiding a "tick the box" approach and focussing on what is important. This book will not only give directors a comprehensive introduction to good governance, but the discussion of the essentials in the context of an airline at various stages of its development will demonstrate how these principles can be applied, and this will give directors the confidence to make their own decisions when they are necessary. Understanding corporate governance will not only help directors, but also an airline's senior management, and concepts like "conflict of interest" apply to all decision makers. Understanding and applying good governance does not guarantee success, but it surely helps in achieving it. Airline Governance: The Right Direction will help existing directors, those who have been newly appointed and those in an airline's senior management"-- Provided by publisher.
