Has coronavirus stopped all flights? — Photos: LEESAN

In the past I used to take about 100 flights a year. Today, as countries around the world keep their borders closed to contain the spread of Covid-19, almost all passenger flights have been cancelled with many planes grounded.

Thousands of aircraft are now parked at airport aprons around the world, which is quite a rare sight to behold albeit a little disheartening. We understand that all this is absolutely necessary in order to win the war against the coronavirus, so I try to think of it in a different way: Perhaps the planes, like me, are taking a good rest to prepare for the next big take off.
