Strategy focus for Airlines 2050

Future strategy for the UK aviation sector will be under the microscope at the Airlines 2050 conference taking place on 17 October at the QEII Centre in Westminster. The event is organised by Flight Global 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, the landmark event is designed to bring together leading industry and government figures to address both the most pressing and the most farsighted issues in play.

In the view of the organisers: “In the context of ongoing technological, political, regulatory and social development, Airlines 2050 will shape the UK aviation agenda for the coming months, years and decades.”

Speakers listed to attend include UK aviation minister Baroness Vere, Emirates Airlines president Sir Tim Clark, British Airways chairman and chief executive Álex Cruz and Virgin Atlantic chief executive Shai Weiss.

Also expected are TUI Airways managing director Dawn Wilson, easyJet UK country director Neil Slaven, IATA chief economist Brian Pearce and UK Civil Aviation Authority CEO Richard Moriarty.

Topics include boosting competitiveness in UK aviation, future-proofing the UK’s global aviation hub status and achieving a more diverse, inclusive and resilient industry.
