Squawk 7000 – Special Episode Recovering Irish Aviation
@CamWallace_NZ A very compelling commercial incentive now exists to open the NZ/AU border to MIQ free passage. Bookings for AU domestic subsidised airfares start on 1/4 – without a bubble option this will materially dilute NZ tourism’s ability to stimulate demand.
@EoghanOMW “If 60% of Ireland’s inbound tourism market is mostly vaccinated by the time summer rolls around, the pressure will rise on tourism authorities here to allow some of them to visit Ireland”.
@_JohnnyHanna Congratulations to AerCap on its USD$30bn acquisition of GECAS. KPMG were delighted to support AerCap with the transaction. #kpmgireland #aercap.
@ReginaDo Pre Covid 560K people would have travelled during same period. We continue to demonise small number of people 7K who have negative tests before they travel and on return and will isolate anyway. If we continue this demonization we won’t have an airline industry left post covid.
@SeanM1997 TUI will postpone the launch of its new Belfast International – Kos route until 22 May 2022 and will not operate flights to Burgas, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Malaga, Rhodes or Tenerife from Belfast in 2021.
