The Long-run Evolution of Aviation Activity following the coronavirus pandemic

The Long-run Evolution of Aviation Activity following the coronavirus pandemic

9 Nov 2020, 16:00 - 17:00

WTM Virtual Global Theatre

The coronavirus pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on travel and aviation activity but a demand recovery remains likely once countries are able to ease international travel restrictions. Prior peak levels of activity will be regained, but activity and the growth trend will be different. In this session, the panel will explore the lasting impacts on passenger behaviour as well as airline activity. Discussion will cover expected changes in traveller preferences and behaviour, as well as lasting industry impacts plus potential policy effects such as new taxes or lingering travel regulations.
