July 27th, 2015

The British Air Transport Association (BATA) is pleased to announce a new annual lecture, which in its inaugural year will be delivered by Carolyn McCall OBE, Chief Executive Officer of easyJet. The event in October will offer BATA members and senior industry stakeholders the opportunity to hear from and question one of the aviation world’s leading CEOs.

Sponsored by Airbus and SITA, BATA expects its annual lecture to become a permanent fixture and highlight of the aviation calendar, sitting alongside an expanded programme of events run by the UK trade body.

CEO of easyJet since 2010, Carolyn McCall has led the company through a series of important milestones, including the airline carrying over 60 million passengers per annum and its listing on the FTSE 100. Having been responsible for introducing a number of airline innovations and generating record annual profits, Carolyn is the perfect person to help launch this prestigious new aviation lecture.

BATA Chief Executive, Nathan Stower, said:

“We are thrilled to have Carolyn McCall deliver our first annual lecture, an event that we believe will become a fixture in the UK aviation calendar. Carolyn’s experience leading one of the world’s most successful airlines promises a fascinating talk. Thanks to the support of Airbus and SITA, the event represents the next stage in BATA’s development”.

The invitation-only lecture and reception is taking place on 14 October 2015 at a prestigious central London location.
