BAG Members Day & Networking Reception- Sustainability and Innovation 10 March 2022 *Register now!*

On 10 March 2022, BAG will be holding our first LIVE BAG Members Day in 2022 in central London from 13:00-17:30 followed by a Networking Reception. The event will be themed around Sustainability and Innovation.
Similarly, to our October 2021 session, the 2022 March BAG Members Day will once again be run as an interactive workshop for all member companies.
Client expectations around sustainability are escalating all the while as they strive towards their net zero and decarbonization targets.   It is no longer an option for the supply chain to ignore this important challenge.  So we are delighted to once again welcome back the Connected Places Catapult to this Members Day to help guide BAG members on their own transformative journey towards enhanced sustainability through innovation.  
The workshop will

  • Update members on BAG’s journey of opening up BAG’s Working Groups to the wider membership for active and diverse involvement. Explain how members can get engaged across BAG’s various activities and groups in 2022 and BAG’s inclusive approach to participation in those groups.
  • Give members the opportunity to participate in facilitated group conversations around relevant themes that will be used to help the Board shape representative views which will be shared with Government bodies to help them shape policy
  • Allow members to understand more about groups such as Sustainable Aviation, a long term strategy which sets out the collective approach of UK aviation to tackling the challenge of ensuring a cleaner, quieter, smarter future for our industry.
  • Offer members the chance to participate in interactive Innovation Deep Dives on a number of topical themes, designed to create content from member dialogue established on the day to develop industry capability statements highlighting value and benefits. Looking ahead at ‘future focus’ and exploring questions clients may have that the BAG membership can support.

We do hope to welcome you at the BAG Members Day for an insightful and collaborative workshop! Please note, places are limited to two individuals per BAG Member company. Register here!

BAG Scottish Regional Meeting- FlyZero – exploring zero-carbon emission commercial flight

The BAG Scottish Region hosted their first meeting of the year on the 16 February 2022 from 17:00-18:00 with guest speakers from FlyZero who  presented and  explored zero-carbon emission commercial flight.
Led by the Aerospace Technology Institute and backed by the UK Government, FlyZero began in early 2021 as an intensive research project investigating zero-carbon emission commercial flight. This independent study has brought together experts from across the UK to assess the design challenges, manufacturing demands, operational requirements and market opportunity of potential zero-carbon emission aircraft concepts. We will present a project overview in advance of the full release of project findings in March 2022.
We also welcomed Matthew Butters, BAG Deputy Chair who provided a BAG Business Intelligence Highlight Update and BAG update.   Please find the recording of the webinar



BAG Business Intelligence Highlight Report *Now Available*

BAG’s Business Intelligence and Strategic Relationship Working Groups come together regularly to try and collect as much intelligence as they can to gather on what is happening in the market, both now and how things change as we the sector recovers and rebuilds.
This document focuses on two key topics:

  • What’s happening at UK airports.
  • What’s happing in the International markets, particularly in the priority markets we set for this year in discussion with DIT. Based on what we learn should we be resetting those priorities or focussing on other opportunities

Over the course of the last few years we have been publishing quarterly Business Intelligence Updates which are released via the BAG website and shared with our membership. The latest January 2022 Business Intelligence Update is a Highlight report which can now be found on the BAG website together with all past editions. You can find the documents here.



The APPG for the Future of Aviation has launched its first inquiry since the removal of major restrictions on international travel

This inquiry will investigate how the UK aviation, travel and tourism sectors has begun and will continue to recover from the devastating impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and the role aviation, travel and tourism can take in supporting the UK economy post Covid, in particular the ambitions to level up different regions of the UK and deliver a Global Britain.
As an active member of The Future of Aviation Group, BAG encourages all members to submit their feedback directly via the link provided below. You can simply submit a one or two-page document to provide your useful insight. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the BAG Team.
The inquiry will close on 1700 on March 10th. For more information please click
