BAG response to Scottish Government's Draft National Planning Framework 4

BAG has produced a response to the Scottish Government Aviation Strategy Consultation.
In BAG’s Strategic Framework one of BAG’s desired outcomes is “BAG facilitates opportunities for our members to network and build collaborative relationships with the widest representation of the UK supply chain”. This is underpinned by promoting a Regional Structure, i.e. truly working with the whole of the UK. BAG therefore operates a BAG Scottish Region that represents interests of BAG and its Members, and provides a community for Members based within this particular geographic area.
We firmly believe in the economic and cultural benefits associated with an active aviation industry and believe that it should be taken into consideration as part of this framework. Aviation is a key means of connectivity for Scotland both within and without the country. Continued support and planning for aviation will help secure jobs that already exist within the sector and support the long term growth of the Scottish economy in general.

BAG Bite Sized Learning VLOG – Ramadan

Last weekend marked the start of Ramadan, a holy month for Muslims worldwide, a month of prayer, fasting, charity, reflection, self-improvement, and community. For many of us, Ramadan is a time where we watch our colleagues abstain from food and water – but how much do we really know about this sacred month and what it means to those observing and importantly how can we support our colleagues?

This VLOG will give you an introduction to the month of Ramadan, what it means, provide you with some ideas how Ramadan can be eased in the workplace, how you can start some meaningful conversations with your colleagues, create a more inclusive environment within your business, and hear some practical tips and related experiences.

The British Aviation Group is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, which reflects the communities and society in which we serve.  As such we have developed an Inclusion Calendar for 2022 where throughout the year, we will highlight selected topics and dates of interest to our members to take them with us on our Inclusion journey, sharing learning and knowledge with our members.

Listen to Furah Naeem (BAG’s Next Gen Chair) and Shakir Khaja (Lead BAG Business Intelligence Working Group) discuss all things Ramadan in this insightful conversation! View the VLOG here!

We are delighted to welcome HEA Services Ltd as a new member to the BAG Membership! We look forward to collaborating with you!
