Tweet Picks:

@AAAndreadis Greece is leading the effort to restart tourism in Europe. There is a coordinated effort by our government and all private sector to open the majority of our destinations and facilities by July 1st. Bilateral agreements and flight connectivity will be key. 

@CamWallace_NZ Pretty solid first few days of demand for @FlyAirNZ in level 2. We have increased some capacity and reopened most city-pairs across NZ. A bit anxious about the build in corporate demand, the next couple of weeks will be an important marker for that. @andykirton.

@HardeepSPuri Easing restrictions on utilisation of the Indian air space will make civilian flying more efficient & lead to a benefit of about ₹1000 crores per annum by enabling optimal utilization of airspace & saving on fuel use & time. This will also have a positive environmental impact.

@HardeepSPuri FM Smt @nsitharaman  Ji has also announced to make India a global hub for Aircraft Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO). Tax regime for MRO ecosystem has been rationalized.

@HardeepSPuri Still further towards making of an #AtmaNirbharEconomy, major global engine manufacturers would set up engine repair facilities in India in the coming years. There will be convergence between defence sector & the civil MROs to create economies of scale.
