  • As per Iata, the worst phase of Covid crises is over for the airline industry.
  • The trade body calls for less border restrictions and less complex travel rules to help the sector’s recovery.

Aviation is one the worst affected industries due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns and travel restrictions. But according to the International Air Transport Association (Iata), the worst phase for the airline industry due to the pandemic is now over due to various reasons. However, the trade body has requested the UK Government to make the travel rules less complex along with lifting border restrictions to support the quick recovery of the aviation sector amid the endemic phase of the virus.

The Iata forecasts show that in 2022, the total losses in the industry are anticipated to fall to US $11.6 billion (£8.5 billion). This means that the Covid-19 pandemic is responsible for a cumulative loss of around US $200 billion in the last three years.

Willie Walsh, the director general of Iata, said that the deepest point of the crisis is past and the industry is on the path of recovery though many critical issues are still there. He added that harmonisation of travel restrictions is the way forward.
