Ian Douglas is a senior lecturer with the School of Aviation.
His research interest is focused on ASEAN aviation, and his DBA research addresses the tensions between economic and institutional factors in development of airline strategy.
Ian joined UNSW in 2007 after 5 years with the School of Management at UTS, and 25 years at Qantas where his roles ranged through airport operations, fleet and airline planning, pricing, revenue management and alliances. At UTS Ian developed the consulting stream of the MBA degree. The contribution of this management consulting program to a range of community organisations was recognised in 2006 with both a university human rights award and a teaching award.
Ian consults to the aviation and fire safety industries, and has worked with both airlines and government agencies in the ASEAN region since his departure from Qantas. His recent consultancy includes strategy workshops with Thai Airways International in Bangkok.
