TATV Newsround: sustainability top of the agenda

The giant order for Rafale fighter jets for the UAE heads the TATV Newsround programme this week as Jon Lake explains how the signals were all there at the Dubai Airshow and what this latest contract means for French-UAE relations … as well as the prospects for the delayed F-35 purchase.
 

On the civil air transport front Mark Pilling talks to Tillman Gabriel, the advisor to the Nigerian government for the launch of the new national carrier Nigeria Air as bids are sought from an international partner airline.

And with sustainability top of the agenda for the industry, Alan Peaford talks to MTU’s Fabian Donus about new developments that will improve emissions beyond that which sustainable fuels can provide.

All this, plus news headlines across the MEASA region from Ella Nethersole.

This TATV programme is brought to you with the support of the World Defense Show.
