BAG Celebrates IWD with stories from the impactful women in BAG * Watch the VLOG Now!*

International Women’s Day (IWD) took place on the 8 March 2022, an important day globally which marked a call to action to accelerate gender parity and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It’s a day at British Aviation Group (BAG) we are proud to recognise.  BAG is proud to support the ‘Women in Aviation & Aerospace charter” and believe this is an important step towards achieving a more diverse workforce in aviation.
At BAG we know we are on a journey and we are committed to being a a diverse and inclusive organisation, which reflects the communities and society in which we serve. It’s important to acknowledge that women are underrepresented in our industry and indeed in our own organisation and while this is beginning to change, progress is slower than we would like. We recognise that a diverse and inclusive workforce leads to more holistic decision making, increased innovation, higher performance, and importantly greater employee engagement.
This is a particularly exciting times for us as we look to the future of BAG; for the first time ever our Next Generation group has an has an all-female elected leadership, which presents a fantastic opportunity for us to inspire and show young women what is achievable.
Our first event in celebration of IWD is a virtual roundtable which sees us bring together the women on our Board and members of our ‘Next Gen’  group. Please click here to hear all about their experiences as role models and how they are working hard to accelerate our efforts to ‘break the bias’.  
Please visit to find this year’s campaign for IWD #breakthebias – we encourage our members to use the resources available and celebrate the day.

BAG Northern Ireland Regional Networking Reception - 22 March 2022 *Book now!*

On 22 March 2022 BAG will be holding our Regional Networking Reception in Belfast from 16:00-18:00 at the Titanic Hotel. We are delighted to announce our Ministerial speaker The Rt. Hon. Conor Burns MP, Minister of State for Northern Ireland, as well as our guest speaker Larry O’Toole, Head of Functions – Infrastructure at Dublin Airport.

We are looking forward to hearing from the Minister of State for Northern Ireland on his outlooks for Northern Ireland and the aviation sector, and specifically on Union Connectivity assessing transport links between the nations of the UK. We are excited to receive an update from Dublin Airport on their plans for 2022 and we have invited Belfast City Airport, Belfast International Airport as well as City of Derry Airport with whom the British Aviation Group has strong relationships.
BAG facilitates three BAG Regions (one of which being Northern Ireland) which allow BAG members to have a voice and forum in the locality. Their aim is to provide a focus for members to help improve their penetration of UK, the local airport market and global aviation markets using the region as a focus for sharing information, collaboration and networking.

BAG Regions are open to all BAG members, but it is hoped that they will enable greater participation in BAG by the regional offices of BAG member companies and attract new members for whom a London based offer has been too difficult to access.

After the great success of the BAG Northern Region followed by the BAG Scottish Region, BAG launched the Northern Ireland Region in November 2019 and we very much hope that you will be able to join us at the reception, which will provide a unique opportunity for engagement with a rich cross section of the UK aviation community
Please join us to meet the BAG Northern Ireland Chair Brian Lewis from RSK Group and Deputy Chair Freddie Patterson from Lagan Construction and to network with key industry leaders and enjoy some canapés and drinks.
This event is open to BAG Members and non-members, so if you are interested in attending, and would like to bring colleagues and clients please book here.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact
 Hannah Sallabanks.

  • 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
