Over 7,500 Aircraft Grounded Due To Coronavirus

Around one third of the global commercial airline fleet is currently in storage as carriers seek to weather the coronavirus pandemic.

In total, around 7,500 planes are now idle as schedules continue to be cut according to data from analytics expert, Cirium.

However, Cirium has transferred just under 100 passenger jets operated by Chinese airlines from ‘in-storage’ status to ‘in-service’ over the past seven days.
