BATA comment on CAA annual airline statistics for 2015

June 2nd, 2016

Commenting on the publication by the CAA of the annual airline statistics for 2015, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of BATA said:

 “These new figures show BATA members collectively carried over 144 million passengers in 2015, a record-breaking number and an increase of 4% on 2014. Although an impressive number, it is important to remember that these passengers are families taking holidays, people visiting friends and relatives, tourists visiting the UK and business people on the move. UK airlines are not only global leaders and innovators, but a success story and an important industry we can be proud of, directly employing over 75,000 people and contributing to hundreds of thousands of other jobs across the economy.”
