A third of airline pilots still grounded
Over one-third of all airline pilots are still not flying as Covid continues to heavily impact global aviation. A survey of more than 1,700 pilots found 62% globally were employed and currently flying.
That is up from 43% a year earlier. The Asia-Pacific region is the hardest-hit with only 53% employed and flying regularly.
Of those pilots still flying nearly two-thirds said they are concerned about job security.
