The Covid-19 outbreak has damaged the aviation industry globally and forced airlines into unprecedented cutbacks. The International Air Transport Association doesn't expect a full recovery until at least 2024. While the Japanese government hasn't called a lockdown and travel restrictions have been relatively lax, there's been a resurgence in virus cases.
