HOW OUR AVIATION POLICY GROUP WORKS

The Aviation Policy Group comprises a group of professionals from the airline and airport sectors that reviews current and proposed policies for aviation and provides, where appropriate, expert advice to government.

Over many years, CILT has advised Government, and the logistics and transport industry, by using the expertise of its members who speak from widespread knowledge but are independent of any particular trade group or business. 
 
In particular, CILT has contributed fully to the work of the Airports Commission, as well as to Parliamentary Inquiries and Government consultations. CILT supported the Airports Commission’s recommendations, both in their Interim Report of December 2013 relating to a range of improvements at a number of airports, in particular to surface access, and also in their Final Report of July 2015 in terms of the recommended option.
 
The Group, also taking account of views across the Institute, prepared its contribution to the CILT Vision 2035, which was published in August 2014 as The Future of Aviation and can be found here.
 
The Committee meets quarterly, and is regularly active throughout the year in responding to consultations and other events.
