Tweet Picks:

@airarabiagroup We are glad to announce that Air Arabia Abu Dhabi has received its Air Operating Certificate (AOC) following a virtual handover meeting between @gcaauae @etihad.

@fionndavenport What do you do when you’ve been given the guts of a $6bn bailout in grants and special low-interest loans, all courtesy of the taxpayer? Raise your baggage fees, of course.

@jonostrower And so we’ve gone from security theatre to public health theatre. Two things aviation can’t control, when a vaccine arrives and economic security, are going to drive recovery and little else.

@LuxuryTravelled Wizzair are reopening bases in London Luton, Timisoara and Vienna next week, on the 1st May.

@RusAviaInsider CargoLogicAir, a UK affiliate of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group, has its licences re-established and can now provide ‘medical’ cargo flights utilising its two B747 aircraft.
