Liverpool Airport Update and Sustainability at easyJet

In early 2020 the COVID Pandemic started spreading across the world and this had a devastating effect on the aviation sector. However, at the beginning of 2022, the global aviation fleet had the same number of aircraft in service as it did in 2017. Yet, at 25,500, it was almost double the pandemic low reached in mid-2020. After two years of wrestling with the Covid-19 pandemic, the aviation industry is once again poised for a decade of growth.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR & Communications, Liverpool John Lennon Airport will give an update on news from our local airport. This update will cover what has been a very difficult two years but there is now reason for optimism; and
The Sustainability Manager at easyJet will outline their sustainability programme which is important in addressing decarbonisation across the transport sector.
The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.

Understanding all aspect of Brake TestingBOOK NOW
25/05/2022 15:00:00 - 25/05/2022 16:00:00



When: 25 May 15:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Alan Beech – Director – Beech Compliance Services

Operating Goods and Passenger vehicles carries a huge responsibility for operators. But within the “operators’ company’ business”, there are many stakeholders who have a role to play in keeping to that OPERATORS LICENCE undertakings and, upholding the standards that the traffic Commissioner outlines – through various modes of documentation/media.

One of the most critical operational aspects of keeping to the ‘O’ Licence undertaking is maintenance – and an area that should be debated further is the responsibilities of brake testing and interpreting the results of those brake tests.

Who are the people involved in the brake testing of commercial and passenger vehicles and what level is their responsibility? How high or low down the level of hierarchy do you think the responsibility lies?

Join us at this event to learn more about the roles and responsibilities and implications of the lack of correct understanding.

Developing Rail Schemes in the North

The last 10 years or so has seen a number of rail schemes developed across the north west, including Warrington West station, the Halton Curve and the Todmorden Curve, alongside the continued development of HS2 and NPR.  Whilst the rail industry has gone through a difficult time due to Covid, and uncertainty remains post-pandemic, initiatives such as Restoring Your Railways aim to continue developing the railway to support future growth.  Andy will outline how these rail schemes are developed, based on his experiences across these various schemes.

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
