On the Fly Travel Update: PHL/LHR & The World

Wednesday, September 22, 2021
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

event affiliation:


Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and London Heathrow (LHR) are the backbone for international business and leisure travel, moving passengers and cargo across the Atlantic Ocean. The global economy and society depend upon this invaluable route. PHL and LHR also serve as a springboard for connecting flights throughout the world. The pandemic upended travel and created a cargo bottleneck. Constantly changing cross border restrictions and regulations have created pandemonium. Air travel is the lynchpin for operations throughout the transatlantic corridor and beyond. More than 20 million people travel between the US and the UK every year, delivering valuable trade, travel and tourism opportunities. Overall trade between the UK and US is more than £200 billion per year, and the US is the UK’s top investor, representing 27% of all inward foreign direct investment.

In May 2021, PHL and LHR signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to increase collaboration and permit greater engagement on a range of topics and issues, geared towards reinforcing recovery from COVID-19. One of the first goals of this MoU is to safely reopen boarders and allow for renewed travel between the US and UK.

Headline speakers, Chellie Cameron, CEO, Philadelphia International Airport and John Holland-Kaye, CEO London Heathrow will open the program, followed by a panel of experts from the travel, airline, and legal sectors. Speakers will review current regulations, as well as provide a preview of what we may be able to expect through the end of this year as our economies navigate the recovery process.

This is a virtual event. Pre-registration is required. A zoom link will be shared after your registration is processed.
