That's 50 years of growth wiped out in a period of 10 months, and is evidence of the gruelling impact Covid-19 has had on aviation.

On the bright side, it won't take 50 years - or even 5 - to get back to the 2019 numbers. But countless families have been left devasted as a result of the lost jobs, and an equal measure of companies within the industry have either succumbed or are hanging on by the tips of their financial fingernails. On top of this comes the billions of taxpayer money which have been pumped into the industry to contain some of the impact, and an equally historic amount of money spent on fast tracking the vaccines.
But a big thank you and tons of admiration to the scientist of BionTech, Oxford, Moderna et. all, who will be the saviours of our industry.

Copenhagen was neither plagued nor burdened with over tourism.
Back in 2019 I had a job in downtown Copenhagen and, sure, there were quite a lot of tourists. But it was nowhere near a plague, in fact it was rather invigorating to see the life and business opportunities it brought with it. You may find a few residents who found it a tad tiresome, but if you chose to live in the centre of a large city that's part of the price you have to pay for all the benefits. It's a bit like moving to a new house close to an airport or farm, and then start complaining over the noise and smell. Hustle, bustle and large number of tourists is a part of daily life in most big cities, and you just have to learn to live with it or move out.
