PODCAST 22: Industry hopes sink as restart held back - IATA explains why

This week's TIMES Aerospace podcast features Muhammad Albakri, IATA's regional vice president for Africa and the Middle East.

Muhammad Albakri talks to Alan Peaford about the challenge of persuading governments across the region to invest in their aviation industry now and keep airlines and airports alive, rather than delay and pay more later.

Albakri, who will be taking up a new role with IATA, speaks about the progress that had been underway in Africa with SAATM and explains how connectivity will help Africa fight back, despite the enormous blow to the continent’s GDP as a result of Covid19.
 
We also provide an update on the Mars Hope project.
 
Plus all the latest news from across the region.
