PODCAST 8: Restoring confidence on return to flight

- from the science to government policy.

 

This week's Times Aerospace podcast looks at the week for Middle East and African aerospace markets as we hear from Jim Haas; Boeing's director of product development, on how aircraft cabins are as safe as operating theatres in terms of air quality and explains how the air filtration system removes viruses such as Covid-19 virtually row-by-row.

We also hear from the IATA regional vice-president Muhammad Albakri on how discussions are going between the industry and world governments on getting consensus on the return to flight with a common set of rules and following the biosecurity roadmap agreed across the industry.

We hear too from the CEO of Rolls-Royce, Warren East on the decision behind the redundancies at the engine manufacturer.

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