We mark one year in lockdown with a reflection on how aviation has changed and a look at the challenges to come.
To mark International Women's Day we hear from two women pilots who have got involved in BALPA work as members of the National Executive Committee. They tell us the challenges they've faced in the industry and why they felt it important to get involved in their union.
For International Women's Day we look at how support for women pilots and family-friendly airline policies remains firmly on BALPA's agenda
BALPA has won a major legal victory against Ryanair in an initial court battle over the punitive actions of the airline against pilots who took industrial action in 2019.
Although many consider them very dry – boring even – the international bilateral agreements which allow airlines to mount services across international borders are vital, in order to give their operations the necessary level of legal certainty. That is why BALPA has been watching closely the negotiations between the UK and EU on our future trading relationship – aviation is one of the subjects covered in the 1268 pages of the recently agreed document.
