Dubai Airshow 2021 - Airbus lights up opening day

With Airbus lighting up the sky on Saturday night – they went one better by lighting up the Dubai Airshow on Sunday’s opening day with a massive 255 Airbus A321neo and A321XLR deal with the low cost carrier consortium Indigo Partners.

Today’s show wrap programme highlights the great flying in the air and impressive equipment on the ground.

But also on some amazing aviation services business - primarily MRO – which saw Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) signing deals with major OEMS like CFM, Thales, Leonardo and Honeywell. The UAE’s air force has signed a $3bn contract with GAL – part of Edge Group- for a fly by the hour MRO service.

While Jordanian MRO firm Joramco reveals it is looking to expand internationally.

With the Boeing 777-X making the headlines for the opening day, TATV’s Mark Pilling takes a look inside the Boeing flagship.
