Furthermore, the Director-General of IATA named Willie Walsh has outlined this related, “The recovery in air travel is collecting steam as governments in many parts of the world lift travel limitations. However, states that persist in attempting to lock out the infection, rather than managing it, as we do with other infections, risk missing out on the enormous economic & societal benefits that restoration of international connectivity will bring.”
