About Us

The Foreign Airlines Association UK

  • The Foreign Airlines Association (FAA) is the UK's leading networking association for foreign airline executives

  • FAA UK is the world’s longest established association of its kind, facilitating the exchange of expertise and best practice among the foreign airline community in the UK

  • The FAA provides the perfect platform for Country Managers, General Managers or even Commercial Managers representing a foreign carrier in the UK to promote their airline and meet likeminded airline executives in a non-competitive, professional yet informal environment.

  • With almost 70 years of experience, the FAA hosts regular networking events, allowing members to meet and discuss matters of mutual interest.

  • The FAA adds value to every member by exposing them to the expertise and guidance of some of the industry’s leading authorities at their networking events, offering targeted presentations on a wide range of topics relating to the successful management and marketing of an airline in the UK. 

  • Matters discussed at FAA events often result in concerns and recommendations being presented to the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK (BAR UK) for further consideration and can be instrumental in influencing commercial decisions affecting all airlines with a presence in the country.

  • The strong relationship that the FAA has fostered with BAR UK throughout the past decades is an important conduit for members and one that considerably enhances any FAA membership.

  • FAA’s ultimate goal is to ensure members are given the opportunity to share ideas, views, recommendations, challenges and concerns in a friendly environment in order to help them find practical and tested solutions among a support network of skilled and likeminded peers.

  • The FAA also runs an annual Christmas event with a high profile speaker, offered to members at an additional, subsidised cost.

  • Membership criteria: Membership is offered to any airline representative of any non-UK airline with a presence in the UK.

  • The FAA celebrates its 70th anniversary on 30 October 2016.
