This special INSIGHT programme could not be more timely as it focuses on the issue of airline restructuring with a special emphasis on African carriers.

Of course all over the world airlines are feeling the pain as the Covid-19 virus bites and the revenues and reserves simply dry up.
In the programme, one of the leading restructuring global experts; Steven Kargman, president of Kargman Associates -shares his thoughts on the particular challenges facing the airline industry and looks at the special issues that will greatly affect Africa.

3.  What are the special restructuring/turnaround challenges for African airlines in particular in this environment? (8:36)
4.  If and when African airlines figure out a way to survive, then what should be their restructuring/turnaround priorities in the next phase of the process? (11:06)
5.  In undertaking restructurings/turnarounds, how can African airlines use this crisis as an opportunity to reposition themselves for new approaches and new technologies? Is there a silver lining? (16:22)
