The UK Airports Winter Resilience Group will hold its annual meeting at this year’s British-Irish Airports EXPO at ExCeL London on 6 October.

The UK Airports Winter Resilience Group has been established for over a decade and is attended by senior winter operations representatives invited from all the UK airports, providing a vital forum to exchange ideas and experiences. Typically, some 40 airports are represented. (Note: Attendance is by invitation of the Group; however, the British-Irish Airports EXPO will pass across any requests by stakeholders to attend.)

The group is chaired by Giles Peeters (Airfield Operations Duty Manager, Stansted Airport, a unit of the Manchester Airports Group), who recently succeeded Heathrow’s John Hamshare as chair. Hamshare has subsequently departed his role as Heathrow’s Airside Regulation and Oversight Manager, following a 30-year career that also included roles at Gatwick and Southampton airports.

A key focus of the meeting this year is scheduled to be the CAA’s work relating to ICAO’s new harmonised methodology for assessing and reporting runway surface conditions – the Global Reporting Format. Originally scheduled to apply from November 2020, implementation may now be delayed – but continued discussion is essential.

The British-Irish Airports EXPO has 150 exhibitors, among which many winter service suppliers regularly participate:

  • Aebi Schmidt
  • ASFT
  • Boschung
  • Bunce
  • DBD Communications
  • JCB
  • KOTI Group
  • LNT Solutions
  • Øveraasen
  • SIB Products
  • Terberg DTS (UK)
