A very happy new year to all of our valued partners, we’d like to start this brand new edition of the Gray Dawes Business Bulletin by thanking everyone for their continued support in 2019, which turned out to be another highly successful year for the Gray Dawes Group.

An Evening With Gray Dawes

We’re Dreaming Of A Green Christmas

You may have already heard, but on the 21st November 2019 we held our latest An Evening With Gray Dawes event, which was all around sustainability in the travel industry today.

If you’d like to learn more about what was discussed at the event, or would like to join us next time, have a look below where you can join our mailing list. Or alternatively, have a look at the below PDF we produced which includes some interesting stats around sustainability!


Our “We’re Dreaming of a Green Christmas” event wasn’t the only thing that launched on the 21st November… We also saw the launch of our brand new corporate identity which re-establishes our key brand values, as well as the way we act and position ourselves as a company.

Our three core business units Gray Dawes Travel, Gray Dawes Events and Gray Dawes Holidays now all sit under one roof, the Gray Dawes Group.

Have a look now at our new Travel, Events and Holidays websites below, to learn more about Who we are, and What we do.

Suite Dreams

On Board The British Airways Airbus A350

The British Airways Airbus A350 is now flying to selected destinations across the globe. This state-of-the-art aircraft offers environmental benefits including fewer Co2 emissions, 25% less fuel burn and, as the quietest twin-aisle aircraft yet, a 40% noise footprint reduction.

Club Suite, BA’s new A350 business class cabin, brings customers the comfort of their own on-board space with private doors. This opens to reveal a specially designed seat that converts to a fully flat bed. 

The A350 is now flying to Dubai, Tel Aviv and Toronto, with Bangalore following in 2020. Plans to feature Club Suite on all long-haul aircraft by 2025 – including 33% of aircraft in 2020 – are now underway.


Sustainability is one of the main goals of Lufthansa Group Airlines. Across the company, Lufthansa Group has improved sustainability principles in 6 major dimensions: Economic sustainability, Corporate governance and compliance, Climate and environmental responsibility, Social responsibility, Product responsibility and Corporate citizenship.

With this is mind, in 2019 an internal initiative was launched regarding 3 time horizons:

Short Term

To ensure there are more fuel-efficient aircrafts.

Medium Term

Efficient air traffic management / single EU sky.

Long Term

Complementary use of synthetic fuels, which is expected to enable carbon neutral flying on a large scale in 10 years’ time.
