SAC supported a South Asian operator (Bamboo Airways) to achieve its EASA TCO approval. Bamboo Airways intended to start scheduled service into Europe by March 26 but had to postpone due to COVID-19 in regard to their scheduled service. Bamboo was able and thankful to the EASA TCO approval to complete 2 repatriation flights in April for Vietnamese citizen out of Europe.
In the last newsletter we looked at the crisis-ridden commercial aviation sector and the players’ prospects for the coming months and years. While this sector will require 2-3 years to regain its strength the business aviation community is more optimistic about continuing demand and stable prices in case travel restrictions will be cut for the 2nd half of this year and COVID-19 will not see a threatening 2nd wave across the globe. The first region to open up and returning to the “new” old daily routines is East Asia. Reason enough to take a closer look.
