Your opportunity to hear directly from the boss of British Airways

Alex Cruz will outline the carrier’s network strategy at Europe’s leading route development forum.

In a full and frank interview Alex Cruz will outline the airline’s major plans for the next few years, including its network strategy, how BA will battle the rise of LCC penetration throughout Europe and what opportunities could be created with a shifting balance of global aviation power to the East.

The Routes Europe conference programme will also bring together leading experts to discuss the most pressing issues facing the route development community. How will Brexit impact the aviation industry as Britain seeks to negotiate its exit from the EU? Will LCCs increase in connecting flight partnerships transform the way that airports are currently operating? How is terrorism affecting tourism growth?

Industry heavyweights will take part in a series of talks, presentations and thought-provoking panel discussions to provide delegates with a valuable insight into the issues driving change and future opportunities in the industry. View the full conference programme.
