This week's Newsround has a clear focus on the airline industry as we look back on the challenges African aviation has faced over the past 20 years

Victoria Moores talks to the outgoing CEO of the Airlines Association of Southern Africa, Chris Zweigenthal about his experiences over the past two decades and where he sees the future going in a post pandemic world.

In the Middle East, adjustments are already being made for that future.

Fly Dubai has cancelled 65 737 Max aircraft from its order with Boeing. Mark Pilling talks to analyst Max Kingsley-Jones from Ascend by Cirium about the impact this could have on the airline and the manufacturer.

Keith Mwanalushi is reporting on the training options for Dash 8-400 operators with Kenya’s JamboJet opening its simulators to the African market. He talks to the new Jambojet acting managing director Karanja Ndegwa about the decision to open up and the airline’s performance through the covid crisis.
