Come Fly with Me: Reimagining aviation

Following a recent ASI report on aviation, this panel will discuss how the UK can reinvigorate the aviation industry through competition & innovation.


Airline deregulation and airport privatisation has substantially increased aviation industry competition, improving passenger choice, encouraging innovation, and reducing flying costs. This panel will expand on the gains made in the past and examine the newest issues surrounding competition within aviation infrastructure provision (such as Heathrow expansion), the benefits of auctioning landing and takeoff slots, and the future implications of drones and autonomous flying vehicles.
