Adjusting to a new life amid COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic inevitably changed the lives of many, even those not touched by the rampant virus itself. Within weeks of being discovered, the virus found its way to almost every corner of the world, leaving destruction in its wake. Health systems around the globe struggled under the weight of the illness. Meanwhile, economies came to halt as governments were forced to take unprecedented action – urging the public into isolation within their homes for months on end, shuttering businesses that would have otherwise flourished, and sending over one million Australians across industries and disciplines out of work, until further notice. 

The global aviation industry was one of the first to take a major hit, with the closure of international and domestic borders seeing the demand for flight dry up overnight. The spread of the virus thus lurched Australia’s largest airline, Qantas, and airlines around the globe, into near total shutdown. The Flying Kangaroo cut more than 90 per cent of flying capacity, and reduced staff in the tens of thousands.
