Over 70 key figures in the aviation industry, including LHR CEO, John Holland-Kaye, Aviation Minister, Baroness Sugg, Lord David Blunkett and easyJet Group Director of Strategy and Network, Robert Carey will contribute to sessions at one of the following five conferences:

• The Regional And Business Airports Group’s Heathrow Connectivity Conference

• The British-Irish Airports Showcase Conference
• The Metropolitan Police Aviation Policing Command Airports Counter Terrorism Conference

LHR CEO, John Holland-Kaye said: “Heathrow is excited to be hosting the 3rd British-Irish Airports EXPO. As the UK’s gateway, Heathrow plays a key role in the country’s aviation industry and it’s great to have this opportunity to showcase the work being done both within our airport and across the sector. Collaboration like this is essential if Britain and Ireland are to secure the connectivity needed to thrive post-Brexit.”
