Airlines’ boss to retire

Mike Carrivick, Chief Executive of the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK (BAR UK), has announced his planned retirement from the organisation which represents over 80 airlines.

Carrivick, who has set a date at the end of October, commenced his aviation career in 1965 on a general apprenticeship with British European Airways.  A 20-year progression with Qantas Airways was followed by roles with Brymon European Airways, Maersk DFDS Travel and IATA.  He joined BAR UK in 2004 where he has since led the organisation through a challenging period for the aviation industry and come into contact with a large number of government ministers, departments and industry stakeholders.

Commenting on his retirement, Carrivick said: "The role at BAR UK has been the most diverse of my career, with many challenges and achievements along the way.  It has been a huge pleasure to serve and I wish to express my thanks to the board and all members, past and present, and a great number of industry, governmental and media friends who have provided so much support.  I will miss the contact with them all and wish the airline industry the recognition and success it deserves.”

BAR UK has commenced the search for a new Chief Executive. www.bar-uk.org
