The weekend's announcement concerning the 'red' rules may have an affect on the speaker line-up for the 2021 World Aviation Festival, next Wednesday 1 December. See All arrivals into England! in this week's BTN.
For many visitors, wherever they come from, London’s ExCeL convention centre will be a first time.
The eastern entrance to ExCeL is just under one mile from London City Airport and the 473 bus runs every 10/12 minutes to Prince Regent DLR station near the entrance. Taxis are available. Coming from central London visitors can go to Caning Town and take the DLR to Prince Regent (recommended NOT Custom House), or come in via Bank and Tower Gateway Tube stations. From Heathrow the journey time is 45 minutes via the Heathrow Express or around one hour via the Underground.
The programme begins at 08:15 with Scott Kirby, CEO, United Airlines.
A full series of speakers follow and we highlight on day one 09:00 David Neeleman, Breeze Air, followed by Robin Hayes, JetBlue; József Váradi, Wizz Air and later in the morning 12:00 Johan Lundgren, easyJet. At 12:45 a panel discussion takes place with Lundgren joined by Shai Weiss, Virgin Atlantic; Marin Gauss, Air Baltic; Alex Cruz, the former BA CEO, joined by Julie Shannock of Microsoft.
The second day is just as interesting and includes sessions concerning airports with the chief executives of the UK major international operations appearing including John Holland-Kaye (Heathrow) and Steward Wingate (Gatwick).
