@ByERussell LATAM Airlines saw an eye-popping 350% jump in Brazil-U.S. bookings after the Biden administration said it would ease travel restrictions. The airline is just the latest to report a surge in U.S. demand.
@ByERussell Northern Pacific Airways, the long-haul start-up from the leadership of Ravn Alaska, has purchased its first six Boeing 757s. The airline plans to connect points in the U.S. and Asia via an Anchorage hub.
@ByERussell Swiss is “observing a strong increase in demand for leisure, visiting-friends-and-relatives and above all business air travel in the short term,” commercial chief Tamur Goudarzi Pour said of the easing of U.S. travel restrictions.
@ByERussell “The easing of travel restrictions is a clear positive in the reopening theme. We would note the big winners should be American, Delta, and United,” writes MKM Partners Analyst Conor Cunningham on the easing of U.S. travel restrictions. He expects a pick up in holiday bookings.
@business The aviation industry faces yet more trouble as the world emerges from the worst of the pandemic to find there’s now likely to be a shortage of pilots.
