Willis Towers Watson’s aviation team has teamed up with the Airport Operators Association (AOA).
A global advisory, broking and solutions company, Willis Towers Watson says the agreement reflects its commitment to the aviation and airport industry as it navigates and encounters a diverse and evolving range of business risks. The company will benefit from participation at AOA policy making forums, such as this week’s annual AOA flagship Annual Conference in London. In addition, it will also be able to reach out to AOA members, including over 50 airports and 150 associate members comprising suppliers to the aviation industry.
With the industry facing complex and fluid risks, the partnership will also allow AOA to extend Willis Towers Watson’s latest solutions and advisory expertise to its members.
Commenting on the partnership, Karen Dee, AOA’s CEO said: “Willis Towers Watson’s extensive expertise and global reach will be of great value to the AOA’s members, and further strengthens the collaborative community nature of UK airports and UK aviation more generally.”
Meanwhile, John Rooley, CEO of Global Aerospace, Willis Towers Watson, added: “We are delighted to formalise our relationship with the AOA, as the UK’s leading airport representative and look forward to working in tandem on future strategic initiatives.”
The partnership follows the Willis Towers Watson aerospace team’s innovative launch of the Airport Risk Community (ARC), which brings together airport operators to debate the risks facing the industry through an ambitious programme of conferences, working groups and airport exchanges.
