At its 90th anniversary gala dinner last night, held once again at the Grosvenor House Hotel, the Airport Operators Association (AOA) - the trade body for UK airports - announced that later this year it will change its name to Airports UK.

Speaking on the night, the AOA’s chief executive, Karen Dee, said: “We are proud of our heritage at the AOA representing the UK’s airports and aerodromes, having been formed 90 years ago this month. Our members will still benefit from the unrivalled representation we provide on their behalf to decision-makers, the regulators, the media, and colleagues from across the aviation sector.

“Air travel is now more popular and accessible to more people than ever before and it is important this remains the case, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of travel. We will continue to make the case for this under our new name, Airports UK, as we all look to the future and seek to address the challenges we never even considered back in 1934.”
