AOA dinner

AOA Chairman, Ed Anderson, opened proceedings with an upbeat speech, praising the positive language contained in the Government’s recent Aviation Policy Framework and urging all political parties to support the Sir Howard Davies Airports Commission, and commit to acting on the recommendations contained in its Final Report.

He also stressed the determination of the industry to deal with its environmental obligations with respect to carbon, noise and local impacts around airports, and promoted the ongoing work of Sustainable Aviation to deliver ‘cleaner, quieter, smarter’ aviation, not least through documents such as the updated 2012 Carbon Road-Map, 2013 Noise Road-Map and 2014 Sustainable Fuels Road-Map, due to be published in July.

The keynote speech was delivered by Aviation Minister, Robert Goodwill MP, who praised the industry’s key role in boosting jobs, growth and connectivity with both traditional and emerging markets in the UK and abroad.

The after-dinner entertainment was provided for the first time by comedian Dara O’Briain. Far better than the previous year was the giggled response.  www.aoa.org.uk
