PODCAST 12: It's all about recovery through technology for aviation

This week's Times Aerospace podcast for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey gets into the swing of recovery.

 

Alan Peaford talks to Andrew O’Connor from the industry-owned IT innovator SITA, we hear how the use of new and current technology will reinstill confidence for the traveling public.

As airlines begin resuming operation a lot of focus turns to the maintenance, repair and overhaul providers. Chuck Grieve talks to Joramco’s chief commercial officer Fraser Currie about how the Jordanian business has fared during the coronavirus crisis and why it is in good shape to kick start its operations.

And among other signs that things are heading back into the right direction. Honeywell and Turkey’s MNG Jet are busy on the connectivity front this week. Steve Nichols caught up with Honeywell’s leader for Turkey and Central Eastern Europe, Serdar Cetingul, to talk about these latest technologies as well as some Covid19-defeating innovations that are making the news headlines this week.

We also review all the news headlines for the industry from across the wider region.
