Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia relayed in the webinar that he is keeping an optimistic perspective about bouncing back for the aviation and travelling industry while also noting that the practise would not be like how it used to be and the world has to adapt to the new ways of doing things.
On COVID-19 vaccination passport that was proposed by International Air Transport Association (IATA) and should it be globally imposed as an SOP in aviation industry, Mohsin Aziz, Director of Pangolin Investment Maybank, included his commentary that such concept is not new citing it had been done for prior vaccination 30 years ago. Should it be back, it should not be viewed with reservation with computer systems today that would make implementing it easier and without prohibitive cost.
