The travel industry is in a really tough place right now. Below are the major airline changes. If you are booked through a travel agent agent and do not call the airline. Even if you are booked with the airline, then do not rush to contact them, you won’t get through. If you are booked to travel within 72 hours, try. Otherwise, wait for things to die down a little after this week.
Air Baltic – to suspend all flights from from 17 March until 14 April – 250 personnel already suspended -more to come. If you are a citizen or permanent resident of Latvia, you can indicate if you need a repatriation flight back to Riga. If your flight has been cancelled, check the “My booking” section on their website and see options there.
Air New Zealand – shares were suspended from trading on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. They will reduce capacity on domestic flights by 30% and international flights by 85%.
American- a 75% cut in American’s international capacity which will be accompanied by a 20% cut in its domestic capacity
FlyBe -has closed down. I really enjoyed flying this carrier. While it temporarily got some cash, the impact of this virus has destroyed it.
LOT Polish Airlines- temporarily suspending all flight operations, after Poland announced to close its borders and halt international travel from March 15 to at least March 28. LOT Airlines are organising special charter flights to various regions of the world to bring Polish citizens home.
Norwegian Air – set to cancel 4,000 flights, temporarily laying off about half of its staff and grounding 40% of its planes because of the coronavirus outbreak with immediate effect. Their CEO Jacob Schram—has asked the Norwegian government for urgent help saying the airline is weeks from collapse.
Qantas– reduced by 25% over the next six months
Qatar Airways – still flying but all incoming flights into Doha are suspended effective Wednesday (March 18) for a preliminary and renewable 14-day-period- transit is okay.
Royal Air Maroc – grounded third of their fleet and adopted austerity measures. The airline was due to join One World in April. I had planned my first flight with them in May. Not happening now.
United Airlines – cut capacity 20 percent internationally and 10 percent domestically.
I will update this information as things develop. Thing of all those doing it tough right now in the travel industry.
