    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.

    Aviation performance forecasts and China's homegrown C919 aircraft's HK visit / Mainland China's relaxation of visa policies

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday’s Backchat, we're talking about the aviation sector's performance.

    Speaking at a media briefing in Geneva, the head of the international body IATA, Willie Walsh, described Hong Kong's recovery as "stronger than expected" -- a promising outlook he attributed to increased cooperation between Hong Kong-based airlines and others in the Greater Bay Area. It was also revealed that worldwide air traffic had reached 98.2 percent of pre-Covid levels in October, although international flights are taking longer to recover.
    Also in aviation news, China's homegrown C919 and ARJ 21 jets are to be showcased at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday -- the first time that the two passenger aircraft have been flown outside of the mainland's airspace. There's also a low fly-past over Victoria Harbour scheduled for 10:30am next Saturday.
    Meanwhile, Hong Kong's flagship carrier Cathay Pacific has just welcomed its first batch of partially locally trained pilot graduates, in a move analysts say is part of the airline's goal to localise its workforce.
    So what does this all mean for the future of aviation in Hong Kong? Is 2024 poised to be an auspicious year for the sector?
    After 9:45, we'll talk about the mainland’s removal of tourist visa requirements for six nationalities, and 25 percent visa fee cuts kicking off today.
