EasyJet's Lundgren at Aviation Club

A busy spell lies ahead this year for the Aviation Club with easyJet CEO Johan Lundgren as guest speaker at the next monthly lunch on 20 March. The same day will see the club’s first Young Aviation Professionals (YAP) event of 2019.

With Brexit looming, new routes under way and easyJet’s latest app feature Look&Book to talk about, Lundgren is likely to prove an informative and entertaining presence as his airline continues to set the pace in a turbulent market. See also SOAPBOX 3 December 2018.

Following requests from members of the YAP group to discuss topical industry issues, the YAP reception from 18:00 at the city offices of DLA Piper on the same day will include a panel discussion on 'Airline Bankruptcies and Consolidations'.

Those interested in the offshoot group do not have to be members of the Aviation Club to attend events, but do need to be aged between 20-35 and active in the industry.

The club lunch on 11 April is also likely to be a lively one with Robin Hayes, CEO of the US carrier JetBlue, taking the rostrum as guest speaker with his company reported to be on the verge of launching new routes from New York and Boston to London (see JetBlue transatlantic hint in this issue).
