The health of A4E passengers and crews is our top priority.
Aviation is the sector hardest hit by the COVID crisis. The unprecedented wave of border closures in spring 2020, within the EU and beyond, led to massive flight cancellations and a dramatic decrease in airline operations. A full recovery for EU airlines is currently not foreseen until 2024 or 2025.
This will have lasting implications for the overall health of the EU economy, particularly trade and tourism. No significant recovery can take place without air connectivity being restored.
Since the beginning of the crisis, A4E has been working to ensure a safe reopening. We are supporting the European Commission’s initiatives – including the launch of the EU Digital COVID Certificate, the Aviation Health Safety Protocol and Council Recommendations on travel.
