TATV Newsround: from around the MEASA region 11 Feb 2022

This week’s summary of the news headlines from across the aerospace industry in the MEASA region kick off with news of an ‘opportunistic’ bid from Kuwait’s NAS to acquire UK’s Menzies Aviation business.

But while that offer is currently rebuffed, Jordan’s plans to buy F016 Block 70 fighter jets is not.

Women delegates to the World Defence Show going through the ‘what to wear’ worries can be reassured by WDS chief executive Andrew Pearcey, who explains how the show is open and it's business like all the other major global events.

Textron have the first production model of its new utility aircraft set to supplement Caravan sales in Africa with 19-seats, while AFRAA reveals the extent of the Covid-impact on flights.

TATV Newsround is brought to you in support of the World Defense Show.

Visitors have until February 15th to register by visiting www.worlddefenseshow.com. All visitors will be granted a one-year complimentary multi-entry visa, to extend opportunities beyond the show.
