@ByERussell Air Canada is confident in its fleet to meet recovery demand but, “if [demand] does come back faster than we anticipate, we can go hunt planes,” says CEO Rousseau. No plans to “unretire” the 79 aircraft Air Canada has retired.
@ByERussell “We are very fortunate in our ability to take advantage of the Covid-19 reset … We are looking at 20% annual growth in the next five years,” says Váradi. Wizz plans to operate ~500 aircraft by end-decade. It’s not Ryanair’s 600 aircraft by 2026 but it’s still a lot of growth.

@PaulByrne66 After 42 startup airlines in the last 18 months, there are at least 36 still to come in the next 12 to 24 months @CAPA.
@winglets747 ANA on August 1 starts flying with sugarcane-based entree containers in economy on international flights. These replace single use plastic dishes. This alone reduces disposable plastics on flights by 30%. That’s equivalent to 317 tons of plastic annually (pre-Covid flying).
