Subsequent to the signing of MOU between Ashok Institute of Hospitality & Tourism Management (AIH&TM), ITDC and Air India to impart training on to the executives of Air India AIH&M, ITDC conducted 5-Day training program on “LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE” from 11th-15th July 2017 for senior executives of Air India.

Distribution of certificates was done by C&MDs of the organisations and the top scorer of the assessment was awarded with a “Coffee Table Book Ashok Hotel” on the occasion.


“ITDC and Air India are two most high profile organisations in India. ITDC is extremely high profile and Air India has always been synonymous to high profile, in international sector.” said Ashwani Lohani

He continued, “When I joined Air India, I realised we haven’t put emphasis on training on leadership, management and how to be a good human being, training on life as such, on tendering, how to make a file, record decisions all that which we have to work on. This training institute of ITDC is a very good institute. You must experience it with lot of dedication, lot of knowledge which is in the people who are running this institute. “








The In-flight Service Department proposed ‘corporate development programme’ to obtain a greater world view of the Hospitality and Service Industry, and prepare its In-flight corporate cadre for specialised skills such as Management skills, Hospitality Administration and Product development.

ITDC provided its expertise in developing the curriculum for the course enabling executives to cope up with the new trends emerging in the hospitality sector.

As per MoU, two courses are conducted for Executives:

  • Executive Management program which would be of 3-day duration

The topics included in the first program of “Leadership Excellence” were Leadership, Management, Tendering, Noting, drafting, official communications, and memorandum etc followed by an assessment of the learning through questionnaire.
