AvTalk Episode 81: ATC 0

On this episode of AvTalk, we review which airlines and countries have now canceled all flights. And journalist Ethan Klapper joins us to discuss the impact COVID-19 is having on some air traffic control facilities around the United States.

Airlines 0

Nearly 100 airlines have canceled all or nearly all of their operations. We walk through which airlines are down to zero and which are still flying a reduced schedule.

Countries 0

Some countries have completed closed to passenger traffic to help stop the spread of COVID-19. India became the largest country to halt all passenger traffic this week.


We talk with journalist and aeronautics graduate student Ethan Klapper about the effects positive COVID-19 diagnoses have had on various air traffic control facilities around the United States and what the future may hold in the face of a spreading pandemic.

Repatriation and rerouting

We’re following the repatriation flights airlines are operating to bring people home, including one that didn’t quite go as planned.
