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.
Opportunity - participate in panel session at DIT Brazil & BAG Online Event: Sustainability and Clean Growth

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.

Call for Nominations for BAG Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group

Earlier in January 2022 BAG reached out to its membership with a call for volunteers for all of BAG’s Working Group for active and diverse involvement and to identify how BAG members can get engaged across BAG’s various activities and groups in 2022 and to highlight BAG’s inclusive approach to participation in those groups.
As such we are looking to grow our BAG Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group and looking for nominations of individuals from BAG member companies who wish to join. Please read below for more information.
BAG is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, which reflects the communities and society which we serve. We will champion inclusion and embed best ED&I practice in all we do, gaining and sharing learning and knowledge with our members. We will demonstrate inclusive leadership and work with our members to promote exemplary levels of diversity and inclusion, working to ensure BAG and the aviation industry is set up for an inclusive future.  This supports BAG’s overall Purpose and Vision of Member Success – “To increase aviation market share and reputation of BAG members across the UK and overseas as part of an inclusive and sustainable UK aviation sector.”
In support of this vision, BAG operated a Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group which provides advice and guidance to the BAG Board on the priorities for action, current best practice, and challenge our thinking to make sure we deliver fully on this important topic. The D&I Advisory Group is currently made up of 4 representatives from BAG member companies and chaired by Louise Houston, Head of Inclusion at Tarmac. We are looking to grow this group and are therefore looking for Nominations of individuals from BAG member companies who have a professional interest in the topic as well as expertise and can demonstrate professional competence. Candidates should ideally hold the brief for Diversity and Inclusion within their respective companies.
If you would like to nominate yourself, or indeed a colleague from your company, please send the relevant contact details to Bettina Rigg by Friday 11 February 2022.
BAG Scottish Regional Meeting- FlyZero – exploring zero-carbon emission commercial flight

The BAG Scottish Region are hosting their first meeting of the year  taking place on the 16 February 2022 from 17:00-18:00 via teams with guest speakers from FlyZero who will be presenting and  exploring 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 welcome Graham Bolton, BAG Vice Chair who will provide an BAG Board and Business Intelligence Update. If you would like to join the BAG Scottish Regional meeting, please register and join the group 
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!
