APRO evening

The Airline Public Relations Organisation (APRO) held its summer networking party last week in the basement of Morton’s Club in London’s Berkeley Square. 

Hosted by Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) most major London operating airlines were represented (with several notable exceptions), the venue very congenial but rather dark and noisy.  Around 45 press, of various persuasions, checked in.

Francine Sheridan, LAX Director Europe, made a short presentation emphasising the airport’s connectivity and plans for the future.  Late 2013 will see the launch of the rebuilt Tom Bradley International Terminal part of a US$4bn investment programme.  There are currently more Airbus A380s operating at LAX than any other US airport, with six daily flights. 

LAX globally ranks sixth in world.  Passenger traffic offers more than 600 daily flights to 91 domestic cities and serving 32 countries.  There are eight daily services to London by Air New Zealand, American Airlines, British Airways, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic.

The evening also saw the publication of the 2013/2014 APRO airline contact directory. www.airlinepr.org
