‘UK Aviation Conference’ – first time ever

The Airport Operators Association (AOA) has announced that its Annual Conference would for the first time be held in association with the aviation trade bodies, BAR UK, BATA and RAeS.  The dates have been set 24-25 November.

The event – traditionally the main aviation conference of the year – has in recent years taken place at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, its closeness to Paddington Station and the Heathrow Express of real convenience to delegates. 

It is being branded as the ‘UK Aviation Conference’. 

Speakers normally include the Transport Minister and his opposite number from the Opposition.  Sir Howard Davies spoke last year and it will be interesting to see whether he appears on the platform again.  Willie Walsh was another speaker.

·         AOA is the trade association representing UK airports.

·         BAR UK is the Board of Airline Representatives UK, representing foreign carriers with a presence in the UK.

·         BATA is the British Air Transport Association, representing UK registered carriers.

·         RAeS is the Royal Aeronautical Society, a membership body for aviation professionals and industry representatives.  www.aoa.org.uk
