Ryanair expands Turin network in late-Oct 2020
“When Was The First Time You Heard The Words Covid-19?” – Interview with Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson
@AvWeekScho Qantas CEO Joyce says the first phase of the travel bubble is “the best news the industry has had in months … it means we’ll be able to get more planes back in the sky and more of our people back to work.” Notes NZ was Australia’s 2nd largest source of inbound travellers pre-COVID.
@CAPA_Aviation CAPA’s Data & Product Director Sharon Dai: In the recent National Day holiday period, China pax. numbers recovered to 91% of 2019 levels. Load factor reached 78.6%, down from 84.9% in 2019, suggesting that demand is still lagging behind capacity investment by airlines. #CAPALive.
@gary_kelly As we continue utilizing a science-based approach to develop procedures to support the well-being of our Customers and Employees, I am pleased to announce a new collaboration between Southwest and the Stanford University School of Medicine.
@Nickycpl We must adapt to living with Covid19. Airlines are now choosing their routes for 2021 based on rapid testing in airlines. Let’s make sure Ireland is on their list. We don’t want to revert to being a “FLY OVER” country.
@timhepher Eurocontrol’s Eamonn Brennan (@eurocontrolDG) explaining on CAPA Live conference (@CAPA_Aviation) why he thinks face-to-face business meetings and air travel will return: “I am Zoomed out, I am Webexed up to here”.
