UTV LIVE TONIGHT: Airline Travel in the COVID-ERA
Author's Video Note:
Has there been an industry more impacted by the Covid pandemic than the airline industry? Tens of thousands of jobs slashed as Canadians stayed home instead of traveling. When the lockdown began, demand for air travel dropped in some cases by 90 percent.
Slowly, the industry is moving forward. But it will look different to anyone who hasn’t been in an airport in the last few months. Only staff and passengers are allowed inside now. Distancing measures are in place as are temperature checks and face masks.
Our Unpublished.vote question asked: Would you feel comfortable taking a flight in Canada right now?
Our audience response:
67.9 % = No
31.2 % = Yes
0.90 % = Unsure
