The COVID-19 pandemic unquestionably threw many industries into disarray. Commercial aviation was no different. In the early stages of the pandemic, an estimated 16,000 passenger jets around the world were grounded, reducing the amount of jets in service to its lowest point in more than 25 years. To give you an example of the severity of the dropoff in air travel, on January 22, 2020, there were more than 113,000 passenger flights. Just three months later, on April 22, there were fewer than 27,000. However, airlines are not the only companies being affected. Diminished demand has caused leading manufacturers like Airbus group to cut their production by more than thirty percent.
