Focus Sessions – aircraft leasing & safety

Did you know that over 50% of aircraft in the world are not owned by the airline but leased by airlines - also in Africa? Learn all about safety of leased aircraft in this episode of the Focus Sessions. Are the imposing of aircraft age limitations good for safety or is it a sign of weak safety oversight?
