Relaunch for airline management networking group

A UK networking association for foreign airline executives is being relaunched with a fresh new brand and website.

The Foreign Airlines Association  (FAA) is to identify ways of working more closely with the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK (Bar UK), which represents the interests of not only its airline members, but the industry as a whole.

Colin Stewart, FAA chairman, said: “With airlines signing up to both associations, there are obvious and natural synergies between the FAA and Bar UK and this is a relationship that I am looking forward to developing over the coming months.”

Membership of the FAA has risen by more than a quarter in the past two years.

The latest carriers to join include All Nippon Airways, AeroMexico, Royal Brunei, Pakistan International Airlines and Garuda Indonesia to bring the total up to 27.

The organisation hopes to expand its membership further ahead of its 70th anniversary in October 2016.

Stewart said: “One of my key priorities when elected chairman was to modernise the association to bring it into the 21st century.

“With constant technological innovation and evermore savvy consumers, the airline industry has changed significantly. If the FAA is to continue to deliver real value to members, it must evolve.

“It is about re-establishing confidence and adding value to our airline and associate members.

“Almost 70 years have passed since the FAA was founded and as we look forward to celebrating this milestone, it is crucial that the foundations are in place to ensure the FAA's continued success for the next 70 years.”
