Monday, August 3, 2020 - Executive Chairman of United Airlines Oscar Munoz discusses the future of air travel during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as answers questions about how we can make our society more equitable.
Oscar Munoz is the executive chairman of United Airlines, having previously served as CEO from 2015 to 2019. Today, he will discuss how United and the airline industry have navigated the economic and health challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and what to expect from the industry moving forward.
Oscar Munoz says airlines were the first industry to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic because of the global nature of both the disease and the industry. However, he proudly notes the efforts of the United family to transport personal protective equipment and medical professionals around the world during this crisis. Shockingly, the industry is operating at roughly 10% of what it should be at this time of year and Munoz does not expect a sustained turnaround for the industry until a vaccine is available.
