Darrell Myers says some suggest the aviation sector will not return to pre-pandemic levels until 2022
With 90% of all the world’s air traffic grounded because of coronavirus mitigation measures, where does that leave pilots?
In this audio interview Darrell Myers, executive president of the pilots association ALPL and Cargolux pilot, explains how while cargo pilots are working at maximum capacity, pilots of grounded passenger aircraft face major pay cuts.
“The only constant is change,” Myers says of the flexibility required of cargo pilots in these extraordinary times.
He also sheds light on the concerns within the community that some airlines may exploit the crisis and push unethical and unsustainable practices once flights resume.
The ALPL has over 600 pilot members in Luxembourg, of which 99% are commercial pilots.
