Key issues facing airlines and airports in the new decade will be under the microscope at the latest Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum (WEETF) policy conference in central London on 30 January.
Competition, environmental sustainability, growth and priorities for the sector will be featured, with a keynote address from Heathrow director, expansion strategy and future operations Fiona Carleton setting the scene.
Sessions on the agenda include aviation policy in the new parliament, expansion at Heathrow and delivering new capacity in the South East, improving competition across routes, adapting to changing regulations and developing a passenger charter.
Another topic listed is future-proofing the aviation sector in face of environmental concerns, greener aircraft and airspace management systems, while overcoming barriers to national airport growth will also be discussed.
Organisations represented among the line-up of speakers include the Department for Transport, Civil Aviation Authority, Aerospace Technology Institute, Aviation Environment Federation and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Also scheduled to appear are Jane Johnston (NATS), Bryony Martin (AECOM), Simon McNamara (IATA), Clive Memmot (Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce), Alan Newby (Rolls-Royce), Senthuran Rudran (Competition and Markets Authority) and Rupert Walker (Network Rail).
