After the Corona crisis is over, when you start air travel once again, you can see many changes from air fares to cabin layouts. This can take you into a new era of air travel such as short routes, pre-flight health check-ups. According to Bloomberg, when the world’s airlines are confident of their operations and waiting to recover from this crisis, their intention and need behind it is to work again with major changes.
According to Volodymyr Bilotach, lecturer at Air-Transport Management at the Singapore Institute of Technology, some premium cabins of aircraft can be upgraded. As a result, the difference between high class and economy seats will open up. According to Billotach, airlines may charge different fees for baggage check-in, legroom and food depending on the fare of passengers. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), even before the spread of the virus, airlines were earning just $ 3 per person, but in Europe and America, the figure was $ 5 and 17 respectively. According to the IATA survey, currently 40 percent passengers will wait for about six months for the aircraft to travel even after the corona crisis is over. EasyJet airline company that plans to travel at a low price is planning to keep the middle seat vacant. So that the passengers can be assured of safety. Korean Air Lines has provided masks, gloves, goggles and protective gowns to its cabin crew.
Wearing a face mask can reassure passengers, but it will be challenging to keep the middle seats empty. Keeping the seat empty will reduce the passenger numbers in the aircraft and will add further trouble for airlines. It will take time to recover from the Corona crisis. Siriam, the aviation sector analysis firm, has reduced the seat capacity of the aircraft by more than 70 percent since January. Delta Air Lines Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said that it may take us two to three years to reach the old stage.
