@BernieBaldwin Growth for us is probably going to come where carriers are pulling out of markets. Think @lufthansa will retreat in Germany and reduce capacity, says Dara Brady, Director of Marketing and Digital, @Ryanair at #AviationFest.
@marklenahan Evaluating antigen tests, with top 50 managers in training centre – took 15 minutes for everyone to get results. Agree with IATA, strongly believe in fast antigen testing before boarding #Aviationfest.
@marklenahan Longer term plan is for LH to pay back government by mid-decade. Cash from operating business but also elements in the portfolio we can sell – MRO, catering, financial services – and airlines can go back to financial markets also. #Aviationfest.
@marklenahan Timelines: October will see govs accepting antigen tests for pax. Test availability is ramping up – widely available by Q4. Pilot routes in the next few weeks. But to get back to full global network will take until Q2 ‘21. Pandemic won’t go away in a few months. #Aviationfest.
@marklenahan We have globalisation now in terms of money flows, data flows, cargo flows – but people need to travel also. More than just saving this industry, but saving the way we live on this planet. #Aviationfest.
