COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

An industry in crisis...

At the end of 2019, reports of the first few cases of SARS-CoV-2 came out of Wuhan, People’s Republic of China. Since then, the world has had to change, adjust, and restructure in ways one could have never thought possible just one year ago. Both financially and domestically, the virus has undoubtedly changed the ways in which the world’s corporations, governments, and population function day-to-day. Few sectors of the economy have had to face the reckoning of the virus more than the aviation industry. Covid-19 has not only led to a huge loss of jobs, but has also put the economies relying on this industry at risk. Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance network, will have to adapt to the new circumstances of this pandemic if it wants to survive. Economic restructuring, logistical changes, and hygiene policies are on the table for the members of Star Alliance, but whether they will be able to handle the challenges of Covid or not is yet to be seen.
