Jane Thompson

A member of the Aviation Club since 1998, Jane is a reputed industry expert, specialist in communications, business development and events.  She has nearly 30 years’ experience in the aviation industry – starting out as a graduate trainee with BAA in 1990, and is perhaps best known for her highly regarded independent events platform, Runways UK, which she co-created and ran alongside the Airports Commission between 2012-2015.  She is now an independent consultant working with ICF Aviation and Heathrow Southern Rail; and she sits on the board of the British Aviation Group.  

Jane combines generous people skills and sharp intellect to help organisations understand how to improve public profile, brand image and sales strategy.  She understands the importance of networking and credits the Aviation Club for helping her develop an impressively wide network within Government and the wider aviation industry. 

Jane has a passion for change and the drive to make things happen and having been a member of the club for over 20 years, feels the time is now right to contribute to its future prosperity through Committee membership.
