Virtual Program Air Travel Today and Tomorrow Tuesday, August 25, 2020 7:00am – 8:00am HST Tickets: FREE
Since the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, domestic air travel has slumped, international passenger traffic has decreased by 95% in some markets, and losses amount in the billions of dollars. As the airline industry grapples with uncertain revenue streams and government stimulus packages, it must also adopt new measures to ensure health and safety on aircraft and in airports. Additionally, many potential passengers will not return to flying until there is an effective vaccine to stem the spread of coronavirus. Join us for a discussion on the short-term impact and the long-term implications for air travel with leaders from major air carriers and one of the busiest airports in the world.
