Airports Expo set for take-off

More than 160 exhibitors and up to 3,000 visitors plus a line-up of key industry speakers including aviation minister Baroness Sugg are expected at this year’s British-Irish Airports Expo at London’s Olympia on 12-13 June.

Hosted by Heathrow Airport, this year’s event is shaping up to be the biggest to date and will also include the annual conference of the Regional and Business Airports Group (RABA).

Five specialist conferences are also on the agenda with speakers from the British and Irish airport community discussing a range of topics including connectivity, infrastructure development and accessibility.

Along with Baroness Sugg, they include Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye, Lord David Blunkett and easyJet group director of strategy and network Robert Carey.

Session topics will include Heathrow connectivity; Heathrow expansion, supply chain and best practice; the Civil Aviation Authority on PRM and airport accessibility; the British-Irish airports showcase, and the Metropolitan Police on airport counter-terrorism.

Holland-Kaye said: “As the UK’s gateway, Heathrow plays a key role in the country’s aviation industry and it’s great to have this opportunity to showcase the work being done both within our airport and across the sector.

Entry to the Expo and conference stages is free to airport trade visitors and airport stakeholders.
