Overview

This event has now sold out.

The Future of Flying: from Greta Thunberg hitching a boat ride to New York to Sweden's flight shame movement, flying is under siege. Yet over 4 billion passengers fly each year and the number is growing fast. What's the answer?

Our panel of industry experts - one from an airline and the other from one of the world's leading aircraft manufacturers - and an environmental campaigner will debate the options: electric planes, biofuels, green offsets, banning air miles, taking the train - or just staying at home?

Join Michael Skapinker, the FT's Frequent Flyer columnist, and an expert panel:

  • Sandra Bour Schaeffer, CEO Airbus UpNext
  • Amy Ruddock, Vice President Corporate Development, Virgin Atlantic
  • Leo Murray, Director of Innovation, Possible
