A new carrier taking off in June 2021: Canarian Airways

Source: Canarian Airways   Ready for take-off despite the pandemic   A new airline despite the COVID-19 pandemic – the worst crisis in air travel since the Second World War?   Hard to believe, but true. Yet the project’s investors from the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife already came up with the idea a few years ago.

Often, those disappeared at short notice without any replacement flights to make up for them – a disaster for Tenerife, where 99% of the tourists arrive by airplane. It is not only since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic that many hotel [...]

By Marcel Riwalsky   Almost two years ago, I took the opportunity to speak about the topic of aviation bringing peace. I used the phrase 'bringing peace' because aviation unites people and nations, promoting economic growth and thus creating prosperity even in more remote regions. Bonds are formed between countries, fomenting the exchange of ideas and creating business opportunities. People that know and understand each other, and who travel to each other's countries, will be less vulnerable to conflict.   Now, a little later, we are facing a time with less aviation – at least in the short term. And the reason is an illness, a virus, or rather the speed of its spread – although due to highly efficient [...]
