April 28th - May 19th

Event Overview

Incorporating the UK & Irish Airports Winter Resilience Group meeting.

As the world experiences more extreme weather events, both airports and airlines find it increasingly difficult to predict, resource and execute winter operations plans. The inconsistency in requirements makes it tough for service providers’ and contractors’ service level agreements to deliver at a sustainable cost for all. Ever-evolving procurement strategies make it even harder for manufacturers and suppliers to deliver leading innovations at competitive prices.

Whether through the introduction of new processes or technology, the primary goal is always the same – aviation safety. As regulators continue to work broadly with the industry to ensure the safest standard and processes are maintained for all, air traffic service providers are working with airlines and airports to optimise the network schedule and build a broader, more accurate picture to help effective planning.

Attendance confirmed:
Stansted Airport, Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, the UKCAA, the Met Office, Manchester Airport, London City Airport, Birmingham Airport, Dublin Airport, Bournemouth Airport, East Midlands Airport, Norwich Airport, Bristol Airport, Southampton Airport, Exeter Airport, DAA, Glasgow Airport, Edinburgh Airport, Newcastle Airport, Luton Airport, Southend Airport, Liverpool Airport, Bristol Airport and West Midlands Airport.

Unlike traditional conferences that take place over one or two days, the Winter Ops Series is split into four distinct, concise, virtual sections so airports need only attend relevant sessions.

Each ‘invitation only’ session is chaired by a respected industry figure and attended by a combination of airports, regulators and suppliers. Section sponsors are able to present case studies and / or take part in panel discussions.

Sessions last between 90 and 120 minutes, the optimum time to ensure maximum focus from speakers and delegates.
