Want a route to Heathrow? Radical FREE conference to hear easyJet, Flybe plus other invested airlines’ plans
HubLAB, the Heathrow Connectivity Conference, has been created in joint venture between anna.aero and the 40-airport Regional and Business Airports Group (RABA) to provide an intensive examination of new route propositions for an expanded Heathrow, including the planned new runway.
It will hear plans at CCO level from airlines with important new London Heathrow ambitions including easyJet (which is planning a Heathrow base), Flybe plus other invested carriers, and a host of airports.
HubLAB takes place at the Heathrow-hosted British-Irish Airports EXPO at London Olympia 12-13 June 2018 (200 exhibitors, 3,000 visitors). This FREE OF CHARGE conference is an important opportunity for airports to find out more about airline plans to provide new services from an expanded Heathrow.
Heathrow’s new runway will create hundreds more daily slots and allow the launch of dozens of new routes. This includes a forecast 40 extra long-haul destinations, and potentially the doubling of the the airport’s domestic services, with Flybe and easyJet indicating that services to airports like Dundee, Norwich, Doncaster Sheffield, Belfast International, Cornwall Airport Newquay, and Jersey, will be on their network development plans when the runway is built. Major cities across Europe which have no Heathrow services – Bordeaux, Eindhoven, Leipzig etc – will also face the chance to connect and feed the Heathrow hub.
What will an easyJet Heathrow base mean?
According to easyJet “Heathrow expansion will allow low-cost, short-haul airlines like easyJet to operate – providing more competition, new routes, more services and lower fares. Heathrow also has the greatest demand from passengers of all types – business and leisure, long- and short-haul, inbound and outbound.” Robert Carey, Group Director of Strategy & Network, will explain just what this means in a star presentation at the free Heathrow Connectivity Conference.
Other airlines coming to explain their growing Heathrow ambitions include:
- Flybe – Roy Kinnear, CCO
- Aurigny Air Services – Mark Darby, CEO
Airports accepting the chance to present business propositions for new routes to Heathrow include:
- Heathrow Airport – John Holland-Kaye, CEO
- Cornwall Airport Newquay – Al Titterington, MD
- Highlands & Islands Airports – Inglis Lyon, MD
- Plus lots of other regional airports!
UK and Scottish ministers to share Heathrow platform
In an amazing show of unity on the question of Heathrow, the UK Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg will share the platform with the Scottish Government’s Minister for Transport and the Islands, Humza Yousaf MSP. Yousaf is on record as asserting: “While growing direct international air routes to Scotland remains our priority, Heathrow’s plan addresses how all Scottish airports benefit from the new runway capacity by providing a significant boost to the country’s connectivity.”
