With airport infrastructure development planned across the UK to meet increasing passenger numbers, how can it successfully be delivered without negatively impacting the environment? Attend this event to receive the latest insight on the Aviation 2050 white paper and essential policy updates for the aviation industry. You will hear future plans and the newest strategies for airport development, including a focus on delivering infrastructure under the latest zero emissions targets and increasing airport’s sustainability credentials.

The day will be bringing together senior leaders from across the aviation industry to discuss the future direction for airport infrastructure development and expansion.
