@AusBT Qantas CEO Alan Joyce says if the Australia-New Zealand ‘travel bubble’ concept works, “a similar approach could be done where (other) countries have COVID-19 under control… it could be a very good model to see the international market open up in phases.”

@flightradar24 Flight activity at China’s 25 busiest airports ticked up last week, with total daily departures passing 5000 for the first time since late January. 

@hharteveldt .@AmericanAir has no plans to close any hubs says its network planning head. “This is not the time to dismantle our customer proposition, this is the time to sharpen it.” #airline #earnings $AAL.

@hharteveldt French minister links €7B in government aid for @airfrance  to 50% cut in CO2 emissions reductions by 2030 & domestic flight cuts. Govt would also like to see AF buy @Airbus aircraft vs @Boeing.

@jonostrower I had to be sure this was in fact from today, but this is the first time since January or February I’ve seen an airline announce a new (passenger) route of any kind to anywhere. Genuinely refreshing and excited to see this again. One small step at a time.
