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!

It was very interesting and informative to attend the lectures and interact with the expert Ivan Berazhny from a Finnish university of applied sciences Haaga-Helia. Thanks to this opportunity provided by the university, I learned a lot of new and useful information in the field of logistics and not only. The lecture was in English, and everyone could pose a question to the lecturer. I thank our university and our Finnish partners for such a unique opportunity!

The lectures organised by Nikolai Mayorov and conducted by Ivan Berazhny, a lecturer from the Finnish University of Applied Sciences Haaga-Helia were very rich in knowledge. All issues considered were very relevant, such as factors affecting the pricing policies in the air transport industry, air transport under conditions of coronavirus pandemic. In addition to the latest statistics, an analysis of the air transport situation in the world was also given. The lecturer from Haaga-Helia explained the topics in clear language. Giving feedback to the lecturer was possible at each lecture, the teacher also answered all the questions on time. The experience of these lectures was unique and very useful.

These lectures are a unique and interesting experience for us. We were able to see our future profession from the economic and financial perspectives of the air transport.

Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude for the fact that we were able to hold such concise, but so informative and interesting lectures. Thanks to our university and thanks to the lecturer of Haag-Helia University of Applied Sciences Ivan Berazhny! It was very nice to listen to him. Each of us learned about how airline revenue management outside of our country is applied, as well as about the cost of flights after removing restrictions due to COVID-19. Lectures were held in both Russian and English, which allowed us to practice our aviation English.
