The Airport Operators Association (AOA), in partnership with British Air Transport Association (BATA), held their annual reception on the terrace of the House of Common last week.
Ed Anderson, Chairman of AOA, paid tribute to Simon Buck, retiring Chief Executive of BATA and before introducing Mary Creagh, Labour’s Transport Secretary, (who impressed everyone with her knowledge of the industry) said that the Government was now very aware of the importance of the airline industry.
“We have moved a long way since 2010,” he said.
The AOA used the opportunity to introduce an interesting booklet “Airports in the Community” highlighting Aberdeen, Biggin Hill, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, London City, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted airports. All of these airports have in some way got themselves involved with various community projects including economic development, local charities and inspiring children and young people. www.aoa.org.uk
