International Track 200

Fast-growing Middle Eastern airline Qatar Airways is the latest company to use CTC, which also trains pilots for Oman Air and Australia’s Jetstar. The rise of the global middle class is driving demand for air travel in emerging markets, helping CTC’s international sales grow to £4.1m in 2012. Last year, group chief executive Rob Clarke, 36, led a management buyout backed by the private equity firm Inflexion.
