Sholto Douglas Named Lecture

100 YEARS OF BRITISH AIRWAYS:
CELEBRATING THE PAST AND LOOKING TO THE FUTURE – 11th April 2019
ALEX CRUZ
CHAIRMAN & CEO, BRITISH AIRWAYS

British Airways (BA) is a full service global airline, offering an extensive global route network across the five continents. BA’s earliest predecessor, Aircraft Transport & Travel Ltd. (AT&T), inaugurated the world’s first scheduled international air service with a converted de Havilland 4A day bomber leaving Hounslow (later Heathrow) Airport to Bourget in Paris on 25th August 1919.
As the company progressing over the past 100 years, today, BA is the largest airline in Britain based on fleet size.

In April 2019, the RAeS Heathrow Branch is delighted to welcome Alex Cruz, the Chairman & CEO of British Airways to present the Society’s 31st Sholto Douglas Named Lecture.

Alex will talk about British Airways’ celebration of its Centenary this year, tracing the airline’s history back to 1919, its current £6.5bn investment for customers, and what opportunities and challenges the next hundred years may hold.
