We are now more than 7 months into the COVID-19 pandemic and perhaps no industry has been more disrupted than transportation. Global air travel is down 85% from this time last year.

The thoughts on everyone’s mind are, “when will it be safe to travel again?” and “will business travel ever be the same?”
