This episode of the APEX Weekly Wrap features an excerpt from an interview with easyJet’s chief commercial and customer officer, Robert Carey, which was recorded during Inmarsat’s recent FlightPlan event. It sees Carey discuss easyJet’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in which they did things “faster than they ever thought [they] could do before;” the two main types of passengers and their thoughts on returning to air travel; and the steps he believes need to be taken before it’s possible to move forward with easyJet’s recovery.
Also explored in this week’s episode is the recertification of the Boeing’s 737 MAX, the launch of the Star Alliance Biometrics platform, Uganda Airlines’ A330 cabin interior and JetBlue’s newly updated Mint experience, plus lots more!
