Podcast #32: The World is Shutting Down

It has been a tumultuous few weeks for the airline, tourism and hospitality industries. As the coronavirus outbreak spreads exponentially, many airlines have stopped flying and international borders are being closed at unprecedented rates. In Episode 32 of the AFF on AIR podcast, Matt looks at the implications of the past few weeks on travellers and the airline industry.

If you have an upcoming booking affected by the coronavirus shutdown, Alan Lam explains how you can change or cancel your flights.

This episode also includes an interview with Henrique Pereira from Draper Startup House in Lisbon – a hostel that unfortunately had to close last week after being open for just two days. Coronavirus is hurting major airlines and hotels, but small hospitality and tourism businesses around the world are equally suffering – this is just one example.
