Is There Hope to Return to Normal Air Travel?

Airlines have been hard hit by COVID-19 and airports have become ghost towns. When will things get back to normal?

How have you been coping with COVID-19 restrictions? Have you been locked up? Desperately hoping for human contact? Have you been gaining weight, putting on the COVID-19 pounds? 

No matter how you are doing, you are absolutely doing better than airlines are. Some estimates are stating that airlines have seen up to a 95% decrease in flyers.

This is no small number indeed. If you do happen to venture to an airport, something most people won't do, you will find a ghost town.                                                                       

There are no lines to check-in and restaurants and shops everywhere are closed. The place is literally empty and it does not seem that it will be livening up any time soon.

Yes, indeed it seems like flights will be restricted to the few absolutely necessary travelers for a long while still. Why? Because flying poses great dangers.

Experts estimate that even a simple cough in a cabin could see droplets reach up to three rows back and forward. We all know what that means for the danger of spreading COVID-19.

And that's not all. Even going to the bathroom on an airplane is dangerous as the virus is indeed spread through fecal matter. Yes, it is indeed that bad for airlines everywhere. Watch this video to find out more.
