The global impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is truly devastating. And while health always comes first, we want to ensure we’re providing members with the support they need from us during these extraordinary times. So, we asked them.
In total we surveyed 7,000 Avinode and Schedaero users. We listened to their suggestions on the help we could offer them, as well as their thoughts on what COVID-19 will mean for their business. Thanks to everyone who took part we now have a clear picture of the challenges ahead, how we can help, and a plan of action moving forward.
We asked what impact COVID-19 will have on air charter demand and their business during spring, summer and fall. The responses show that both brokers and operators expect a lower demand than usual during spring (approximately 90% reduction for both sides), which will lead to a big impact on business during spring (approximately 60% reductionfor both sides).
However, predictions for fall are much more optimistic, with the most common response being that COVID-19 will have ‘No impact on business’ (35-40% for both sides). When asked about demand during fall, a majority on both sides (65-70%) believe it will be back to normal levels or be higher than usual.
Amongst the uncertainty, we’re committed to being flexible in how we meet the needs of members – both operators and brokers. The table below shows the suggestions made by members and the actions we’re putting in place as a result.
