Podcast: What next after COVID-19 puts the industry out of work?

written by Tasha Levy | March 26, 2020

In the last week, a dramatic ramping up of social distancing, travel bans and state lockdowns have forced airlines to stand down the majority of their staff. But amid the chaos, what’s next for Australia’s aviation industry?

On this episode of the podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant, Christian “Boo” Boucousis and senior writer Adam Thorn reflect on the latest airline announcements, including Virgin Australia standing down 80% of its staff, Qantas’ soaring share price, and REX’s unique approach to demanding a bail-out.

They discuss the long road to recovery predicted for international flights, the ongoing collaboration between unions and airlines, and the now booming maintenance and storage sector of the industry.
