Podcast: The last A380, and Ryanair back at it again

written by Robyn Tongol | March 30, 2021

In traditional Ryanair fashion, the budget carrier is ambitiously striving to hit 80 per cent or more of its pre-COVID capacity as soon as July, in a bid to see Europeans embrace the summer travel season.

In this episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and reporter Hannah Dowling discuss the European giant’s latest headline-making statements, along with the news of European planemaker Airbus completing the inaugural flight of its final iconic four-engine A380.

The team also discusses the intriguing controversy surrounding Norway’s latest low-cost trans-Atlantic carrier Norse Atlantic, in a story that sounds all too familiar as embattled carrier Norwegian Air exits that very same market.

Finally, the crew also touches on current recovery prospects for airlines across the globe, and the innovative ways some airlines are increasing cash flow to tide them over – including IAG’s decision to offer lucrative landing slots at Heathrow and Gatwick to secure $1.8 billion in funding.
