The Weekend Show with Chris Notter and Steven Dickson (part 28)

Yes, we are back again – this time early! So, for all those who know both of us – yes, it is unusual.
Lovely to see BA 747-400 G-CIVW being flown from Cardiff to Dunsfold Park – site of BBC Top Gear and Aviation Filming Limited and Aces High Limited. It will be used as a film set so the grand old lady of the skies will be treated well in retirement.

EK – World’s largest GDP Compliant Air Cargo Hub for CV-19 Vaccine distribution – SKY Central DWC – well done!

IAG Cargo re-starts LHR-TYO route. IAG 3d quarter loss Euro 1.3 billion – Sean Doyle -” Will the Industry ever recover?”
Canary Islands added to safe travel list so an option for some winter sun.

Again, the issue of testing and consistency and acceptance is on the table. A must to bring back passengers and endorse the safety of flying. Airports need to communicate the great initiatives being carried out to protect everyone from arrival at the airport to boarding the aircraft.
Governments and the need to use practical Aviation experts – Steven supports the pressures ministers are under irrespective of early action or cautious action.

China and punitive measures taken against Ethiopian Airlines due CV-19 infected passengers. Is this the right approach.
CX and the demise of CX Dragon. Re-structuring at Malaysian Airlines.

Tough times ahead, however, with a collective and logical approach to Industry Re-Boot the light is still shining at the end of that tunnel.
