PODCAST 10: Business or Leisure ...

With the Emirates chief and the big bounce back for tourism.

Emirates president Sir Tim Clark was the headline act at the first Arabian Travel Market Virtual from Dubai this week.  Our correspondent; Marcelle Nethersole was tuned in to the debates on tourism and the shared impact it has suffered from the coronavirus pandemic.

We hear from Sir Tim about the challenges of cashflow which could scupper some airlines even with government bailouts. He talks about his instinct for the great return to leisure and business flights – and shares his thoughts on when the bounce back will happen. We hear too from government and industry about views on tourism ahead from the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Rwanda.

When airlines do resume service as normal then ancillary revenues will be at the heart of their thinking. Steve Nichols hears from Kian Gould CEO of digital platform AOE about why airlines will have to work smarter to benefit from the new marketplace.

Plus the highlights from the week’s news from across Africa, Turkey and the Middle East.
