The Airport Operators Association (AOA) has put together an exceptional line-up of air industry leaders for its annual conference in November (Paddington Hilton Metropole 10-11 November).
The theme is "Sustainable Airports for a Stronger Economy."
Taking charge of the assembly as moderator is BBC Radio 4 Today anchor-man John Humphrys. Sir Howard Davies, Chairman of the Airport Commission, features in the programme, on the same stage as Willie Walsh, Chief Executive of IAG, who in the past has shown no interest at all in the airport review. Maybe this is changing?
With Aviation Minister Robert Goodwill MP in the line-up the event features a who’s who of the UK air transport industry headed by Andrew Haines, Chief Executive, CAA and including Richard Deakin, Chief Executive, NATS. Airport chiefs expected to speak include (in order of airport capacity) John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow; Stewart Wingate, Gatwick; Charlie Cornish, Manchester Airports Group; Paul Kehoe, Birmingham; Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh. Chris Browne, Chief Operating Officer, TUI Aviation, will also comment from the platform, as will Mary Creagh MP, Shadow Transport Secretary.
Broadcaster and journalist Simon Calder is hosting the black tie dinner on the Monday night. http://www.aoa.org.uk
