Abstract

Purpose of the paper aims to find out the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global air transport sector (passenger transport, air freight) during the first three months of 2020, and after analyzing the status of the global air transport market from January to March 2020, the study found that the CORONA pandemic has significantly affected this vital sector, where airlines suffered significant losses due to the cancellation of many flights and travel suspensions, in addition to the laying off of much employment and Some of them went bankrupt, while the volume of air freight decreased after global supply chains were shut down as a result of the closure of factories and limited only to the transportation of medical equipment and food supplies in some countries, and the repercussions of this pandemic are expected to be severe on the global economy in the coming years.
