This is the June 18, 2020 hearing "Climbing Again: Stakeholder Views on Resuming Air Travel in the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Era" held before the House Subcommittee on Transportation and Maritime Security of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of J. Luis Correa: "We are here to discuss proposals for how to restore our Nation's aviation system that has been so devastated by COVID-19. We have seen passenger volume in the last few months go as low as 5 percent of normal. Today, it is close to 15 to 20 percent of normal, but that is just not good enough to keep the aviation industry in business, and it is not good enough for the health of this Nation. As all of us know, this pandemic is unprecedented. The lack of Federal leadership and interagency coordination is very concerning to all of us. Of course, we ask the question: How can we protect our front-line aviation workers and our passengers if our consultation coordination is not there?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kevin M. Burke, Sara Nelson, Neema Singh Gulliani, and Victoria Emerson Barnes.
