This week's air travel news from BTN

The last few days have been traumatic for the airline industry with a new variant of Covid-19 breaking out in Southern Africa with the potential of a quick spread to Europe.  And now all arrivals into England have changed.

BTN is as up to date as we can be but do check and join our Twitter account for any updates.  

The sold-out Akbar Al Baker Aviation Club lunch goes ahead on Tuesday, likewise does the World Aviation Festival

Imminent is a statement from British Airways on a return to Gatwick.  BTN has the details. 

The airlines are at war with John Holland-Kaye and Heathrow.  The airport CEO gave The Air League Sir Andrew Humphrey Memorial Lecture last Wednesday, for the most part keeping away from the subject and focussing on carbon and sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) and Britain’s air transport role for the future. BTN features under COMMENT.

Cornwall has a new air link  and the re-launch of Flybe gets nearer.

ON TOUR is the Dubai Air Show, whilst AND FINALLY could be seen as a spotty up to date question!
