Economic and safety concerns mean demand for air travel is unlikely to bounce back immediately to levels seen before the coronavirus outbreak, an industry body said, citing the results of a recent survey conducted in 11 nations around the world.

"Passenger confidence will suffer a double whammy even after the pandemic is contained, hit by personal economic concerns in the face of a looming recession on top of lingering concerns about the safety of travel," Alexandre de Juniac, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association, said in a recent release.

"Governments and industry must be quick and coordinated with confidence-boosting measures," he said.
