Aviation 2050: the future of UK aviation

In December 2018 the government published its consultation on a new aviation strategy – ‘Aviation 2050: the future of UK aviation’ – a long-term plan to achieve a safe, secure and sustainable aviation sector that meets the needs of consumers and of a global, outward-looking Britain.

BBGA are continuing the work with DfT to ensure that the Future Aviation Strategy for 2050 reflects the requirements for our sector in the final white paper. Without question the previous Aviation Strategy, which is currently in force, reflects very little of what we do in our sector and primarily reflects scheduled airline activities only. BBGA believes it is vital our sector is represented appropriately in the new white paper, so that in the next five years or so MP’s, civil servants and other government agencies make their decisions in line with FAS 2050.

‘We are a small family owned and run business that the introduction of new measures by BF would have caused severe financial hardship.  I was recommended to ask BBGA for advice which they instantly gave even though we were not members.  They attended various meetings by my side, took the situation to a higher level within the Government department and helped me achieve a satisfactory outcome.  I wasn’t pressured to become a member but what became apparent was their genuine desire to help resolve aviation issues for the better of the community.  This association covers almost every aspect of the industry, has representation on the majority of decision making panels and achieves results by either diluting possible harmful legislation or stopping it altogether.  Its members receive updates in real time often leaving other associations to ‘cut and paste’ BBGA releases some time later.’
