Quarantine Measures Threaten Aviation Restart in Africa & the Middle East

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 02, 2020:    The International Air Transport Association (IATA) urged governments in Africa and the Middle East (AME) to implement alternatives to quarantine on arrival that would allow economies to re-start while avoiding the importation of COVID-19 cases.   Government-imposed quarantine measures in 36 countries across Africa and the Middle East (AME) account for 40% of all quarantine measures globally.

AME has the highest number of countries in the world with government-imposed quarantine measures ......read more

Continued Government Relief Measures Needed to get Airlines Through the Winter

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 17, 2020:   The International Air Transport Association (IATA) warned that the airline industry faces a hard winter and called on governments around the world to continue providing relief measures as the COVID-19 crisis continues.   Airlines are expected to post a loss of $84.3 billion in 2020 and government financial relief is a lifeline to many airlines.
