A landmark event called Airlines 2050 between the aviation industry and government focusing on future strategy for the UK airline sector is to take place in London on 17 October at the QEII Centre, Westminster.

The gathering has been organised by Flight Global in partnership with Airlines UK, the UK Board of Airline Representatives (BAR UK) and IATA, bringing together key players driving UK aviation and overseas airlines operating in the UK.

Speakers include UK aviation minister Baroness Vere, Emirates Airlines president Sir Tim Clark, British Airways chairman and chief executive Álex Cruz, Virgin Atlantic chief executive Shai Weiss, TUI Airways managing director Dawn Wilson and easyJet UK country director Neil Slaven.

Joining them among others will be IATA chief economist Brian Pearce, Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) executive director Michael Gill and UK Civil Aviation Authority CEO Richard Moriarty.

In a joint statement, spokesmen for Airlines UK, BAR UK and IATA said they were delighted to be working together with Flightglobal to launch the landmark event in the UK market.

They added: “The event will showcase what the airline sector brings to the UK in terms of world-class connectivity, as well as debating some of the opportunities and challenges our members face to remain globally competitive.
