I am interested in doing Air Ticketing Management. Can we get jobs easily? Please give me details about Universities in Kerela or Karnataka that offer this course. What are the qualifications needed for it?
If you do a good course in Air Ticketing/ Travel and Tourism administration/ any other related courses, you will get job opportunities. But it is difficult to say whether you will get the job easily as getting a job depends on your attributes over and above your qualifications. For example, communication skills, pleasant personality, ability to keep your cool under challenging situations, attitude to help people and ability to convince people are some of the attributes which are considered by companies to select a candidate for a job in the travel and tourism industry.
For getting into Air Ticketing, you can do a Diploma in Travel and Tourism Management or a Diploma in Ticketing/Ticketing and Reservation. If you have a Diploma which offers you a IATA (International Air Transport Association) certification, the chances of getting a good job will be more.
Some of the Institutes from which you can do a course:
School of Travel Management, Darsana Academic Institute, Sastri Road, Kottayam,
Kerala – 686001; Phone: 0481-581055
Speedwings Academy For Air & Sea,
II Floor, Enchakalody Buildings, (Above Kaloor Post Office),
Kaloor, Cochin - 682 017; Tel: 0484 345737
There are courses for both undergraduate and post graduate levels. This means that you can do a course after your class XII as well as after your graduation.
