Effect of Lockdown on Ground Handling and MRO Industry Associated with General Aviation

The capital investment in aviation and associated businesses are heavy. Therefore, in situations like this, the losses are also proportionate and grow exponentially with no inflow of revenue. The ground handling and MRO business have come to a grinding halt during this period. In a day only two or three flights are being operated under NSOPs at Delhi, compared to 40 to 50 flights a day during the same period last year. Revenue losses are further aggravated by cancellation of International flights, since the COVID outbreak in Feb 2020.
