Some airlines have completely suspended service during coronavirus pandemic
The airline industry has been on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic, which has left carriers across the globe scrambling as demand for travel has plummeted. One of the latest updates come in the UK, where Virgin Atlantic has pushed back resuming flights until at least August after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that all international visitors would be required to self-isolate for 14 days.
Another move underscoring the colossal shift underway comes in Europe, where the continent’s two largest low-cost carriers – Ryanair and EasyJet – suspended all operations. Ryanair has since announced its plans to resume 40% of its flights starting on July 1, 2020 and EasyJet will resume a small number of flights between the UK and France on June 15, 2020, along with Geneva, Lisbon and Porto in Portugal and Barcelona, reports The Guardian.
