This episode is the first in a new series of podcasts spotlighting innovation and the impact of positive disruption on the African aviation industry, ahead of AviaDev Africa 2021 ONLINE. 

First, I am joined by Meir Hadassi Turner, Founder and CEO of AeroCRS, an innovative provider of passenger service systems and much more besides, to discuss the changing needs of airlines. 

We then move to Cape Town, South Africa, where I am joined by Jon Ayache, CEO and Cilliers Jordaan, Head of Commercial at lift. We discuss how they were able to leverage technology to launch in a short window and what their plans are in the short, medium and longer-term.
