The 2019 Sir Andrew Humphrey Memorial Lecture And Dinner

The 2019 Sir Andrew Humphrey Memorial Lecture and Dinner

On the 11th of November 2019 Mr Alex Cruz, Chief Executive and Chairman of British Airways will deliver the Air League’s landmark 2019 Sir Andrew Humphrey Memorial Lecture – ‘A Vision for the Next 100 Years’ at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London. The lecture will be followed by a celebratory dinner at the Society.

The world’s first daily international scheduled flight between London and Paris was launched in August 1919 by forerunner company, Aircraft Transport and Travel Limited. Over the past 100 years, British Airways and its predecessor airlines such as Imperial Airways, British European Airways and British Overseas Airline Corporation have shaped the face of the global civil aviation industry and for an entire century have remained at the forefront of flight.

In 2019 British Airways is celebrating its centenary year and is a company synonymous with pioneering spirit, customer service, innovation and vision. This year’s Sir Andrew Humphrey Lecture will be themed on the vision for the next 100 years of British Airways and the wider global air transport industry.

On conclusion of the lecture a special celebratory dinner with Mr Cruz as our guest of honour limited to only 100 guests will take place in the Argyll Room at the Royal Aeronautical Society. Senior leaders within the aviation and aerosapce industries will be able to engage with the next generation of young aviation and aerospace professionals.


This year the Air League celebrates its 110th anniversary and a number of leading aviation and aerospace organisations are also celebrating significant milestones. Therefore, we are anticipating a broad range of industry colleagues attending the dinner and lecture.

Corporate tables for 10+ can be reserved by contacting finance@airleague.co.uk and if you wish to donate a place for a young professional outside of your business, please indicate this preference.
