Airlines UK dinner date

Bookings are now being taken for the 2018 Airlines UK annual dinner in central London on 24 January, with transport secretary Chris Grayling due to deliver the keynote speech at the start of another busy year for UK airlines and the aviation sector.  

Brexit and Heathrow expansion will be among topics on the agenda, with Airlines UK chairman Jane Middleton setting out the carrier position on some of these and other key issues of the day.

AUK has already been in the news on the Heathrow debate in response to the government Airports National Policy Statement, saying: "Heathrow is the most expensive airport in the world and passenger charges have trebled in the past decade. 

“Carriers back expansion, but on the strict condition that costs are kept under control, and we support the secretary of state in his determination to keep charges as close as possible to current levels." 

Speeches at the dinner are also likely to touch upon the forthcoming Aviation Strategy, with initial consultation papers – including one on how aviation can better work for the consumer – expected to be published shortly.
