PODCAST 35: Change abounds at IATA and new cargo boost while ATM has a new approach

As IATA holds its AGM there are clear signs of change.

 

CEO Alexandre de Juniac is stepping down and will be succeeded by the loquacious former IAG chief Willie Walsh who takes no time to take off the diplomatic gloves and point figures at misguided governments.

 
In this week’s podcast we hear from both of them as they lay out future direction IATA will take.

While airlines have been seen to be bearing the brunt of the travel collapse, CANSO reports that air navigation service providers have lost more than $9 billion so far since the start of the pandemic.

We talk to Ryyan Tarabzoni , the CEO of Saudi Arabia’s air navigation provider SANS about solutions.

Five BAE-146 jets are being brought into the fleet of Uganda’s Zone Four International as the Entebbe flight services operator swings toward approval for commercial freight flights around central and east Africa and beyond. We meet Kaires “K” Odom, the founder and CEO of the airline and hear about his plans for the future.

When it comes to the future, planning is a nightmare right now. Especially if you are in the MRO business.

Rapidly changing circumstances such as we’re seeing at the moment play havoc with the kind of scheduling that airlines and MROs are used to, forcing them to adopt ‘duck and weave’ tactics that could well become another of these ‘new normals’ that we hear about every day. Our MRO editor, Chuck Grieve talks to Aerogility CEO Gary Vickers about the situation.

This, plus all the news from aerospace, aviation and defence across the Middle East and Africa.
