CAPA Live: BA CEO Sean Doyle - "we'll come out the other end”

Talking at the CAPA Live on 14-Apr-2021, British Airways CEO Sean Doyle spoke with CAPA’s Peter Harbison.

In some verbatim extracts below, Mr Doyle discussed:

BA's "rightsizing"

- "airlines are better run when they're run as businesses"

- sustainability, fuel efficient fleets and net zero by 2050

- vaccine progress should help open up the UK-US market and "fatigue with zoom calls"

- the the potential of the "A321neo narrowbody opportunity"

- the importance of the Qatar Airways partnership in opening up Asian networks

- the China market's importance as it parallels the UK's services sector

London City Airport has great potential

- creating a framework for travel to reopen, cheaper testing, vaccinations

- APD makes the UK industry uncompetitive

- a focus on integrating APIs into BA's core airport processes

- sustainability: " IAG was the first airline group in the world to commit to net zero by 2050"
