50 years since the MSc in Air Transport began at Cranfield University

Last ‘Cranfield Mafia’ meeting at Farnborough, six years ago. This year marks 50 years since the MSc in Air Transport began at Cranfield University and to celebrate, a reunion is being organised on 26 September 2014. In those 50 years, there have been over 1,300 alumni, many of whom now hold senior positions in the global aviation industry — for example Mark Dunkerley, CEO Hawaiian Airlines and Samer Majali former CEO of Royal Jordanian and Gulf Air. The day will be full of reminiscing with fellow students and staff, panel discussions on key issues which face the industry today and a chance to hear about the future plans for Cranfield University. If you are an alumnus and are interested in attending, please register here or email alumni@cranfield.ac.uk.
