There’s seemingly no facet of our society or economy that’s not been impacted by the dreaded 11-letter epidemic.
COVID-19 has done a number on countless industries, but there are few that compare to what the aviation field has endured.
With several restrictions and travel bans being enforced, airlines saw their profits plummet. Fortunately, some domestic routes are starting to pick back up, and Asia is at the forefront of these exciting returns.
This month, Asia has had the world’s busiest domestic routes, and they’re showing no signs of a slowdown.
Regarding the future of travel, we can expect to see significant changes for years to come. In other words, the fallout of the coronavirus will be as consequential as the pandemic itself. Experts maintain that flights will remain cheap so that airlines can recoup their losses.
However, though the prices will be favorable, passengers will have fewer flights to choose from. More specifically, there won’t be as many flights flying out of smaller cities like Del Rio, New Windsor, and Williamsport.
What’s more, business travel is likely to remain stagnant. Analysts share their predictions, stating that corporate trips will remain 25 percent below their pre-pandemic levels for some time.
Moreover, it’s probable that more airline workers will get the boot. These long-term projections are undoubtedly unsettling, but it’s better to embrace this reality than to deny it.
