Saturday with Chris Notter and Steven Dickson (part 21)

Saturday live and another episode with Steven Dickson, SKYLIGHT AVIATION,

Today – Most of the time spent condemning the futility and stupidity of the many Travel corridors and Quarantine guidelines and controls.

No sense, no verification, and no direction! ‘CHASE IT, CATCH IT, KILL IT’ – TEST-TEST-TEST. Governments and representative bodies need to explain, promote, and market the realities and focus on the incredible initiatives being introduced by Carriers, Airports, GHAs and in fact the entire aviation community.

Leaders need to be clear – stop leaving the back door open for discussion, misunderstanding and abuse.

Qantas, Virgin get the needed result re liquidity yet more casualties on the Job front – part of the harsh realities of the industries ‘Practical Sizing’.

EK recognizes the efforts of the organisation – back to full pay in October.

Wizz Air – more positives from routes to strategy.

Hats off to Cargolux for the ‘freighter mask’ – brilliant.

Concerns for numbers in India and discussions on Vaccine Logistics and priorities.

Great webinar this week from DXB Airport Show and great initiatives on pax confidence boost.
