PODCAST 18: Steps to recovery - and the sum of the parts

This week's podcast looks at two main issues that are part of the recovery plans for aviation in Africa and the Middle East.

Of course, passenger confidence is one.

The need for everyone in the aviation industry to be a PR person for the airline business is clear. We need to inform friends, family and others about the safety measures in place to prevent Covid 19 spread – and understanding air systems to keep cabins safe is one of those.
 
We talk to Laurent Hartenstein from Liebherr Aerospace about the air management and environmental systems.
 
We also recognise that there is a need for rightsizing fleets – and replacing old and inefficient aircraft with new greener types. All of that means more scrapping.
 
One company with an eye on the tear down business – and the value of spare parts – is global parts supplier AJW.  Our MRO editor Chuck Grieve talks to the company’s senior vice president for strategic material and asset management, Conrad Vandersluis.
 
This, plus all the aerospace news headlines from around the region.
