The CEO of Middle Eastern low-cost carrier Air Arabia is looking positively at travel in the months ahead, according to reports.
“I expect a good summer subject to we don’t get hit with surprises of a third wave or something of that nature… As vaccines take place, as more airports are opening, I anticipate more people want to travel,” Air Arabia Group CEO Adel Ali told Reuters yesterday.
The remarks come as COVID-19 vaccines continue to be rolled out globally, resulting in a growing population of vaccinated would-be travellers.
The CEO hopes that as the vaccination drive continues, it could spell the relaxing of international travel restrictions, which in turn will lead to an uptick in passengers. Commenting on this, he notes that the demand is certainly there, yet continued airport mitigation protocols and quarantine measures will certainly limit travel.
“Of course, people will not go on holidays if they’ve got to quarantine for two weeks. If it’s open, they will,” he says.
He will focus primarily on the airport's marketing and communications functions on a consultancy basis.
