Podcast: MAX back on track but European holidays off

After a gruelling lockdown, the one thing weary Britons – and wearier budget airlines – need is a travel bubble between the UK and Spain. Yet, this week it looks further away than ever.

In this week’s episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and guest Hannah Dowling discuss the latest on why the UK is still refusing to open up to much of the EU and US, and what this means for the industry.

The team also discusses the latest on the MAX’s electrical issues, which saw nearly a quarter of the type grounded.

Finally, as Australia announces it’ll stay closed until 2022, will the rest of the world follow suit?

    If you have an article on the 737 Max, you could at least use a photo of one!

      Hi Dave, thanks for your comment! As always, we discussed a fair few important topics on this week’s podcast, not just the MAX. We talked about the currently restricted intra-European travel situation, and its wider impact on the industry, so that’s why we decided to use a photo of a Ryanair aircraft. Also – we have spent a LOT of time discussing the MAX in recent months, so we find it’s good to change up our choices in photos here and there. Hope that clears things up! 🙂
