Alan Peaford explains how it has been an important two weeks for this sector with fast-moving developments.
One sector that was hit hard by the pandemic is ground handling. One of the world's largest aviation services providers, with ground handling and airport services, is Dubai’s Dnata.
GCC editor Jill Stockbridge met up with Steve Allen, the recently appointed executive vice president of Dnata and talked to him about the impact of Covid, the road to recovery and the value of innovation as well as prospects for growth in the market.
Turkey has been hosting the IDEF event this week and defence editor Jon Lake reports on the early highlights of the show while Ella Nethersole and Alan Peaford have been to the movies and finding out about protecting wildlife in Kenya and the anniversary celebrations in the Gulf, especially for the aviation industry in Bahrain.
