PODCAST 6: Looking towards the new normal

This week's podcast covering the aerospace, defence and aviation business sectors across the Middle East and Africa ponders on the question, what will the new normal look like.

While news headlines are dominated by the gloom this programme looks forward to brighter skies ahead.

Programme host Alan Peaford and Emirates president Sir Tim Clark, backed by facts from IATA, share the same view on social distancing on airlines but agree there will be a new tomorrow.

Technology editor Steve Nichols hears from SITA’s chief executive Barbara Dalibard on what the new normal could be, and how technology will play its part.

MRO editor Chuck Grieve gets to grips with discussion on the push by OEMs into the aftermarket, and how it is going to affect independent service providers, particularly in the aircraft modification space. He talks to Nicole Noack, Managing Director, of IAMA, the independent aircraft modifier alliance.

And there is some upbeat news. We hear from Nuno Pereira, the CEO of Angola’s Bestfly Aviation about their successful contract win in the oil and gas sector this week and how they have kept in air during the Covid crisis.

And if you too are asking whether this is the end for aviation academies and careers in aviation for young people, then Captain Lee Woodward from Skyborne Academy could put your minds at ease.
