easyJet Chief Executive gives inaugural BATA annual lecture

October 15th, 2015

The inaugural BATA annual lecture took place yesterday afternoon, with Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive of easyJet, delivering a speech to an audience of senior industry figures and stakeholders at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden.

Nathan Stower, Chief Executive of BATA, said:

“Carolyn delivered a fascinating and entertaining lecture about easyJet and the major issues facing our industry. Her support for cross-industry collaboration to provide a strong voice and effective action on the issues that unite us could not have been clearer. BATA will work with all of our members to provide that collective voice – from campaigning on Air Passenger Duty to ensure passengers across England don’t lose out after devolution to Scotland, to finding practical steps to tackle the problem of disruptive passengers.

“We were delighted that SITA and Airbus were able to support the lecture and that so many key aviation figures were able to attend. Following the success of yesterday’s event, work will soon start on preparations for next year’s lecture. This is all part of BATA’s greater focus on external activity, performing a vital role as a positive, confident and vocal organisation representing the UK airline industry.”
