TATV NEWSROUND - Feb. 4: Bahrain's boost, Nigeria's plans and Dubai's training magic

Posted 4 February 2021 · Add Comment

The first TATV Newsround programme brings an overview of the main talking points in the news from the aviation, defence and aerospace industry in the emerging markets of the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.

The fortnightly programme – sponsored by the World Defense Show - looks at the opening of the new terminal at Bahrain International Airport as Chloe Greenbank assesses the boost this will give the Gulf island state for the revival of Gulf Air.

MRO Editor Chuck Grieve hears from AJW’s Ian Malin about the plans for a Nigeria-based MRO facility to support the fast-growing Nigerian aviation scene as well as a leasing business alongside.

And like something out of a Hollywood film set, GCC Editor Jill Stockbridge gets behind the scenes at what could be the most exciting cabin training facility across the region … if not the world.

In the whistlestop tour of the headlines from news editor Marcelle Nethersole we hear about fighter jets and American bombers over India; of the UAE’s on-hold hopes for the F-35 as well as its moves to support the developing world with the distribution of Covid-19 vaccine. We learn how trafficked wild animals will get a free ride home from Qatar Airways and look forward to next week’s space drama as the UAE’s Mars Hope project draws near to the Red Planet.

So, join host Alan Peaford for this 20 minute look at our regions’ highlights.
