COVID-19: Aviation and flying never ever the same again

(Updated: )

The coronavirus pandemic has made ghost towns of airports around the world. Airlines have slashed flights. Crew have been furloughed. Berkshire Hathaway’s pulling out of investments in US airlines has underlined the severity of the long-term disruption. We break down the key issues: What will be left of airports, airlines and the aviation industry once the COVID-19 storm has calmed? Are we expecting air travel to be in deep freeze for the next two years, until a vaccine can be widely distributed and countries have brought the virus under control? And will money makers for airlines, business travel, recover with the surge in use of video conferencing tools?

Lin Suling speaks to International Air Transport Association Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific Conrad Clifford, Nitin Pangarkar, Professor at the National University of Singapore’s Business School and Endau Analytics founder Shukor Yusof.
