The strong demand for air freight throughout the year during the pandemic times has reinforced the importance of the air cargo industry. How do you think has this benefitted the aviation industry?
The pandemic proved the importance of the aviation industry especially during the lockdown period ensuring that the products such as food and medical supplies reaches the consumer without any delay was fully reliant on the aviation industry. We have seen a dramatic slowdown in all types of industries including passenger travel (if not totally stopped). However, in the cargo industry, we have seen a huge jump in the number of A/C operated during the pandemic and the lockdown, more and more passenger A/C were used as purely cargo A/C just to cope with market demand. It was a huge challenge for everyone with the new perspective of the cargo business, but personally, I believe that all the stakeholders of the cargo industry managed to adopt the new requirement and deliver their best services.
