BA boss for Air League

The Air League will be meeting one week today, on 11 November, for the 2019 Sir Andrew Humphrey Memorial Lecture at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London. British Airways chairman and CEO Álex Cruz is the guest speaker.

The lecture – titled ‘A Vision for the Next 100 Years’ – takes place at a turbulent time in an anniversary year for BA and against a background of strikes and technical problems at the airline.

Echoing his address at last month’s Aviation 2050 conference (BTN 21 October), Cruz is also expected to deal with the potential of sustainable aviation fuels in hitting CO2 emission targets in the industry.

He told the conference: "We believe we can have 14-15 sustainable aviation fuel plants in the UK by 2035, producing nearly 8% of total UK aviation fuel needs. By 2050, that figure should rise to around 30% of UK aviation fuel being sustainable.”

The League is marking its own 110th anniversary this year and the lecture will be followed by a celebratory dinner with Cruz as guest of honour and industry leaders able to engage with the next generation of young aviation and aerospace professionals.
