I would like to express my deep gratitude to the lecturer Ivan Berazhny for sharing the information and his experience in the field of civil aviation. During the lectures, we learned about how aviation performs during coronavirus pandemic, about its impacts on the airline industry, variation in fuel price, performance of hub airports and much more. A huge plus for me was that one of the lectures was conducted entirely in English, which helped me improve my learning of aviation subjects in English. Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, many thanks for the experience!
