Aviation Newsletter - Summer 2020

The world has undergone a dramatic upheaval since our last Aviation Newsletter in February as a result of COVID-19, with the aviation sector suffering considerably due to restrictions on and collapse of demand for carriage by air.

Sadly for us, this included cancellation of our Clyde International Aviation Conference last month. As our sector begins its recovery, interesting questions arise as to the effects of this pandemic and what the ‘new normal’ might look like.

In this edition of our Aviation Newsletter we have a wide variety of articles from members of our Aviation Global Practice Group that explore these issues, as well as others with a broader coverage of topical developments. Its diversity reflects the unparalleled Additional Information breadth that we can offer in terms of aviation knowledge and experience, both geographically and in practice area.

We hope you find it useful.
