Security measures play not the last role in promoting effective organisational performance in airlines, and it is more than important to reconsider how organisation theory and the basic security/ safety measures work for the benefit of successful airline/ airport performance.
Organisation theory and its principles create preconditions necessary for airport and airline operators to succeed in their operations: management in general and aviation management, in particular, makes it possible for operators to achieve their business goals in an effective and efficient manner (Daft & Marcic 2008). More often than not, management becomes important because it provides organisations in the aviation industry with an opportunity to integrate the existing management functions and capabilities with their basic operations and to balance their goals and objectives with limited resources. The four elements of successful management comprise functions, roles, skills, and ideas. These elements should be reconsidered in the context of airport and airline management.
Functions in management usually refer to what managers are expected to do and do to help their organisations achieve the major goals and objectives; “the four basic management functions include planning, organizing, leading, and controlling” (Pride, Hughes & Kapoor 2009). Planning is often referred to as the first and the basic function in management and implies that to succeed in their performance, organisations should establish their goals, mission, objectives; it would be fair to say that everything in organisations depends on planning and its effectiveness. This management function works to help airline and airport operators establish plans (e.g., flight schedules), without which accomplishing goals and objectives becomes virtually impossible. Organisations can use both strategic and

For example anaerobic decomposition of dead organisms can result to its formation (Schiller, 2010, p.1). However buried organisms take millions of year to shape up in the form of fossil fuels (Morgan, 2007, p.8). Generally fossil fuel contains high amount of carbon, and also includes petroleum, coal and other natural gasses (David, 2011, p.147).
Air Asia: The World’s Lowest Cost Airline. Air Asia operates in a market structure that is dominated by considerable competitive rivalry as it relates to pricing specifically. Larger and emerging low-cost carriers continue to pose competitive threats to this growing airline, prompting changes in marketing, service positioning on the consumer market, and improvements in cost consolidation to improve quality and convenience.
However, along with the growth have come increased complexities and managerial challenges as competition, terrorist threats, epidemics and financial slowdowns as well as rising fuel costs have continued to present a strong impact on the aviation sector. Thus, strategic and operational management in the air transport sector now presents complex challenges.
After the invention, development process continued and finally airplane was made available for commercial purposes in the 1950s. The commercialization of aviation made air transport as the most swiftest and flexible mode of transportation. Slowly with the passage of time air transport has been able to gain large acceptances in the market place.
