Heathrow airport will begin offering rapid COVID testing for departing passengers (Source: Heathrow).Welcome to 2021: a year marked by trouble at Boeing, border closures and major aircraft tragedies.

This week on the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and guests Hannah Dowling and Christian “Boo” Boucousis discuss a start to the year that seems worryingly familiar.

In particular, the team talks in-depth about Boeing’s $2.5 billion 737 MAX fine, what we’re set to learn from Israel’s rapid-fire vaccine program and whether the new normal will ever go back to being the old normal we liked.

Finally, in some positive news, the crew chats about a recent FAA ruling that opens the door to a new generation of supersonic business jets.
