The year 2020 is now already the worst year in aviation history worldwide, due to the massive impact of the coronavirus outbreak. The COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread around the world rapidly, which causes smaller airlines to go bankrupt and even the world’s largest airlines are heaving a hard time surviving.
