He warns that if the virus outbreak becomes a pandemic, it will have the biggest impact on aviation since the global financial crisis. The International Air Transport Association estimates that the coronavirus will reduce the earnings of Asia-Pacific airlines by $US27.8bn in 2020.

Roy Morgan Research has announced the June 2016 winners of its monthly Customer Satisfaction Awards in Australia. Emirates has won the award in the category of International Airlines, with a customer satisfaction rating of 89 per cent. Second-place getter Air New Zealand had a satisfaction rating of just over 87 per cent. Having won three months apiece so far this year, the two airlines have achieved the seeming impossible by holding Singapore Airlines – winner of the International Airline of the Year in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 – at bay. Currently, Singapore Airlines sits in third position, less than a percentage point behind Air New Zealand.
