The UK

Aviation is a major UK industry, carrying over 235 million passengers a year and over 2.3 million tonnes of freight. Demand for air travel is projected to grow in the medium to long-term. Nine out of ten air journeys from UK airports are international. Air transport is the public transport network of the global economy and vital to the UK's performance as a trading nation. Aviation supports business through international connectivity, the movement of goods and people and attracting inward investment.

Almost 40% by value of UK trade with non-EU countries is transported by air. The UK is a major destination for overseas visitors. Those arriving by air, who account for 75% of visits to the UK, contribute over £14 billion to the economy or over 85% of foreign visitor spending each year. Aviation is a social good. Travel to visit friends and relatives (VFR) is the fastest growing segment of the non-business travel market and is the most important reason for travel at some UK airports.

Our range of air related projects are generally UK based covering many of the main UK international airports and air industry key suppliers. We have grown our specialist air industry team of professionals who are aware of the key requirements of this unique industry and keen to take on whatever challenges our clients require assistance with.
