BAG Members' Survey - Industry Priorities for 2022 * Deadline 29 October 2021*

The BAG Board is keen to ensure that our agenda responds to the needs of the membership, and that we continually review and improve the service we offer based on your feedback. Our annual survey provides a key opportunity to gauge how we are performing, and to help inform our planning process for the year ahead.
This year we have tailored the survey to focus more on the wider challenges facing the industry and priorities to support recovery – which will help provide an agenda and evidence base for engagement with government and other strategic partners, as well as our own plans for 2022. Key findings from the survey will be shared with government both directly through DIT and DfT, and in our engagement with the Future of Aviation Group. Conclusions will also be shared with the membership.
The structure of the survey falls into three short sections:

  • COVID-19 Impact

To understand overall impact of the pandemic across the aviation supply chain – using a consistent set of questions to help identify trends. This provides an evidence base that is shared with government (DIT & DfT) to help inform policy; and is used by us in shaping our own agenda

  • Brexit Impact

Allowing us to respond to DIT on industry experiences and concerns in respect of Brexit, and highlighting areas where BAG could do more in sharing information or industry positioning

  • Industry Priorities for 2022

Identifying wider industry priorities that BAG should be addressing in our agenda for 2022, including target markets, knowledge sharing and events
