Important Announcement

Postponement of UK Airports Safety Week

As you may be aware, airports across the country are currently facing a range of challenging externalities – not least the current outbreak of COVID-19 and its impact on airport operations. Following consultation with our airports, the AOA has decided that UK Airports Safety Week will not be going ahead in May as previously advertised and instead shall be postponed until further notice.

We will consult with members on the possibility of rescheduling the event for later in the year and will of course update all members if a firm date is established.


Introduction to Safety Week

UK Airports Safety Week is a national event developed and coordinated by the Airport Operators Association (AOA). It is a deliberate and determined focus to promote safety improvement and development through experience and learning. This year’s event, taking place on the week of the 11th May at airports across the country is set to be the biggest Safety Week yet.



Make your safety week a success with our ideas pack and other resources.


Following the conclusion of UK Airports Safety Week 2020, all participating airports are able to nominate themselves for the AOA’s Safety Week Awards. The results will be announced at the AOA’s Awards Dinner in the Autumn.
