Gatwick vs Heathrow

Getting ready to celebrate its 21st anniversary this coming summer the London-based Aviation Club of the United Kingdom has timed its latest two guests of honour to perfection.  Sometime after the UK General Election (7 May) the Airport Commission will present its report.

Next Thursday (30 April) the speaker is Stewart Wingate, Chief Executive of Gatwick Airport. #####

Since 2009, the airport has been owned and operated by Gatwick Airport Ltd, itself part of Ivy Holdco Ltd a consortium of companies headed by Global Infrastructure Partners (41.95%) and Future Fund Board of Guardians (17.23%), Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (15.9%), The California Public Employees' Retirement System (12.78%) and the National Pension Service of Korea (12.14%).

On Thursday 4 June John Holland Kaye will be on the rostrum, more or less celebrating 12 months in charge of Britain’s largest airport. 

Heathrow Airport Holdings Ltd is the major residue of the breakup of the former BAA and is owned by FGP Topco Ltd, a consortium owned and led by Ferrovial SA (25%), Qatar Holding LLC (20%), Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (12.62%), the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (11.20%), Alinda Capital Partners (11.18%), China Investment Corporation (10%) and Universities Superannuation Scheme (10%).

Tickets are available for both lunches for members and their guests.  www.aviationclub.org.uk
