View from the Chief Executive – April 2013
April 30th, 2013
The first few months of 2013 have witnessed a rash of consultation documents from regulators and, with your input, BATA has responded vigorously to these. But a trade association worth its salt must also be proactive and seek to take the lead in bringing about change when needed. BATA has also been busy in doing this by highlighting in the media and with officials and politicians a wide range of issues from aviation taxation to train services to airports. BATA is also a resource that stands ready to assist members whether by supplying research, additional lobbying effort or, most effectively, by acting as a focal point for the UK airline industry to speak with one voice.
