Hearing: R&D to Support Healthy Air Travel in the COVID-19 Era and Beyond [video]   [open html - 0B]

This is the June 23, 2020 hearing on "R&D [research and development] to Support Healthy Air Travel in the COVID-19 [coronavrius disease 2019] Era and Beyond," held before the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the Opening Statement of Kendra Horn: "As with many other industries, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted commercial air travel. In the U.S. alone, passenger air travel was down an estimated 96% in April 2020 from April 2019. Worldwide, the air travel industry is projected to lose more than $300 billion in gross operating revenues this year. And the ripple effects of this shift extend well beyond airlines, to travel and tourism, business, supply chains and much more. While Congress has provided financial support to the airline industry through loan guarantees, workforce support, and tax relief in the CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act, full recovery also requires ensuring safety and re-establishing public confidence as we continue to face the risks of COVID-19." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Heather Krause, Byron Jones, and Vicki Hertzberg. The duration of this video is 1 hour, 40 minutes, and 55 seconds.
