Aircraft. 90 new carriers will be born by the end of 2021
The latest updates on the industry
The air transport crisis is chronic due to the coronavirus pandemic, although there are still some encouraging signs. As reported in the last hours by the Spanish media, in fact, in this 2021 there were 16 new air carriers that started their adventure around the world, but the total should rise to 90 by the end of the year. These numbers are sobering, given that last year 30 companies stopped being active due to the negative economic situation triggered by the health emergency. In addition, it should not be forgotten that air traffic for 2020 fell by 70 percentage points. Aircraft leasing company Avolon Holdings noted that take-offs around the world are expected to see encouraging growth over the next few months, with the United States playing a leading role in this sense.
Going back to talking about the debuts of the sector, two Italian airlines that have just started their operations cannot be forgotten. We are talking about Ego Airways, the carrier officially presented last December and which this spring is making itself "known" with the planning of the first air routes. Furthermore, in January the final details were formalized regarding the 100% made in Marche company, a project presented for the first time last September.
