airline KLM

The British low-cost airline easyJet has discontinued flight operations due to travel restrictions to combat the corona virus. It is currently unclear when the machines can take off again, said easyJet.

In order to keep the impact on the balance sheet as low as possible, costs would be reduced. In addition, a vacation regulation for cabin crew was agreed with the union, which will apply for a period of two months from April 1. Over time, the crew receives 80 percent of their average wages.

AUA boss believes in comeback

The corona virus crisis has hit airlines hard, including the AUA. AUA boss Alexis von Hoensbroech still expects the airline to make a comeback, even if it could take longer for the situation to normalize.

However, the further development is not yet foreseeable. „It could take a few years before demand returns to the pre-crisis level,“ he said in an interview with Austrian Aviation Net. The need to meet people remains. This also includes mobility. World trade and globalization would also not be abolished.

„But the longer the crisis lasts, the more support we will need from the state.“ That doesn’t change the fact that the Lufthansa subsidiary has to continue to deal with its structural problems after the crisis, „as we started before the crisis.“
