The morning of July 15th, an airplane of Etihad Airways coming from the United Arab Emirates landed at Mexico City’s International Airport. The aircraft was carrying medical equipment and supplies intended to the medical authorities to attend the COVID-19 patients and mexican citizens previously stranded in the arab country.
The world finds itself in the 5th month since the massive spread of the new COVID-19 virus, and the airlines sector is taking new movements to reactivate the normal operations under the new status quo known as “the new normal”. One of the airlines that is trying to survive the medical crisis is Interjet, the mexican low-cost airline founded in 2005.
Two days ago on July 3rd 2020, the news was released that Air France and Hop! airlines are taking into consideration reducing their operational staff to the quantity of 7,580 workers-at least until 2022. This is considered as a possible measure to resist and cope with the low demand in air transport produced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
