Inflight COVID-19 transmission is extremely rare. Since the start of 2020, there have been 44 confirmed or possible cases of COVID-19 associated with a flight. Over the same period, some 1.2 billion passengers have traveled. That equates to one case for every 27 million travelers.
Air cargo accounts for approximately $111 billion in airline revenues, and the industry handles some $6 trillion worth of goods or roughly 35% of world trade. Though these are impressive figures, ‘could do better’ seems to be forever stamped across air cargo reports. Some of the software solutions being largely legacy-based might have limitations in adding modern functionalities.
