ICCA discusses aviation industry recovery with leading global airline alliances

For the past few weeks, airlines have gone through different phases of impact due to COVID-19: from planes flying empty, to not flying at all, and now during the next few weeks flights are slowly returning.

As part of its “ICCA Global Conversations” series, ICCA is organising an open online session with its airline members to discuss the most important issues for reopening the global meetings industry, titled: “ICCA Global Conversations: Future of Aviation and Air Travel – Safety and Customer Confidence”.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the aviation industry due to travel restrictions and the lack of demand among travellers. 

For the past few weeks, airlines have gone through different phases of impact due to COVID-19: from planes flying empty, to not flying at all, and now during the next few weeks flights are slowly returning.
