Minister set for Airlines UK dinner

Bookings are now open for the Airlines UK 2019 annual dinner, taking place on 30 January at the Park Plaza Hotel in Victoria, London. It is the largest airline social event in the UK and one of the highlights of the aviation calendar.

Keynote speaker for the 2019 gathering is aviation minister Baroness Liz Sugg, who will be joining around 250 senior representatives from across the industry, including airlines and airports, the government, CAA and media.

The minister’s speech will come at an important time, with government support for a third runway at Heathrow under scrutiny and just weeks after publication of the Green Paper on the UK’s aviation strategy setting out initial thoughts on aviation through to 2050 (see also Strategy consultation launched in this issue).

The first proposed measures from the strategy consultation were outlined just last week by the minister during a visit to Gatwick, including the proposal for the creation of a new “passenger charter” to be adopted by airlines and airports, and backed by the government.
