In March, as borders started closing across the world, aviation followed with an almost instant grounding of passenger flights. Airlines were no longer able to plan and schedule flights, leaving European citizens stranded abroad.

Flights were carried out amidst fears, worries and uncertainties that this pandemic brought onto us. Captain Javier Fernández-Picazo, who operated a repatriation flight bringing Spanish citizens back home, shared his experience with us.
