Air League Palace invite

One of the aviation industry’s top events takes place this month when the Air League 2019 Honours and Awards Reception is held at St James’s Palace in London. The date is Thursday 30 May, with British Airways chairman and CEO Alex Cruz as guest of honour.

Cruz’s appearance comes at an exciting time for his airline, which is about to welcome the first of its Airbus A350-1000 fleet featuring the new Club Suite and is in the midst of a £6.5bn investment programme in customer service.

The Air League reception is held at the palace with the approval of the league’s patron, the Duke of Edinburgh, and is regarded as a unique occasion within the aerospace, defence and security industries’ calendar.

It provides an opportunity for leaders and professionals to network while supporting the Air League’s aim of increasing diversity, proficiency and interest within these sectors and the work undertaken to support disadvantaged young people and disabled veterans.

The reception is also where major awards are presented and scholarship and bursary winners receive their certificates in the presence of sponsors, family and friends.

Supporters of the event include Airbus, Boeing, Bristow, British Airways and Lockheed Martin.
