COVID-19 EFFECT: UAE airlines say it will take 3 years for air travel to return to normal

-

Top officials from Emirates and Etihad both said that it could take up to three years for global air travel demand to return to normal.

A video conference was held recently with Emirates President Tim Clark and Etihad Chief Executive Tony Douglas, both saying that they believe 85 percent of the world’s airlines are at risk of ‘insolvency.

They added that without the government support, airlines could go bankrupt before year-end.

Since the start of the pandemic, major airlines have stopped their operations, but others have operated outbound-only services for foreigners leaving the country.
