The landscape of the aviation industry has fundamentally changed since the Covid-19 outbreak. As of mid-July, 60% of airports remain out of service. Moreover, passengers have modified their habits with 59% of travel booking made less than 3 days before departure.
Airbus Customers have to define their plan for a smooth and progressive return to operations by considering health safety requirements and restoring confidence in air travel as their top priorities.
To support customers during in this current context, Airbus Consulting experts propose as a first step, a personalised free of charge gap analysis. The objective is to identify gaps between authorities requirements and safety measures already implemented within the company.
Airbus Consulting experts will propose over 3 weeks, a plan made up of 115 COVID-19 measures and taking into account international guidance, airline’s existing measures, industry practices, local situation and regulation.
"We believe we can help make a difference for airlines when resuming operations to rebuild passenger confidence."
