The last six months have witnessed an irrevocable change in the world. The COVID-19 global pandemic has wreaked havoc on health, business, and touched every facet of life.

What was once taken for granted no longer is. Particularly hard hit are the tourism and aviation industries as governments instigate measures to keep the virus at bay.

Though airports are now slowly increasing the number of flights, air travel remains less than half of what it was a year ago.

The impact of COVID-19 will continue to cast a long shadow on air travel, but given that a number of countries are eagerly ramping up their tourism blitz, promising social distancing and declining infection rates, our question to you is simple: do you plan to fly again this year?

Are you adopting a wait-and-see approach, are you investing in staycations instead, or is flying simply off the table this year? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Not unless they open the borders to where I want to go
Lost my cape, so no.

I tried standing here flapping my hands but nothin'.

or is flying simply off the table this year?


Until C19 is effectively dealt with, if it ever is, I'm not getting on a plane.

I'm not spending hours wearing a mask on a plane, and until we have an effective and provable vaccine against infection, I'm not spending hours cooped up in a metal tube with an air recycling system.

So, until Covid is “sorted”, if ever, you won't find me on a train, bus, plane and sure as hell not on a cruise ship.
to be honest in such closed enviroment there is always a risk of getting something
Haven't been on a plane since 2001, so…. nope.
