The event brought together social partners in Spain, across two roundtable discussions, to examine how aviation was impacted by COVID through specific case studies.

Viral partners in Spain organised this event, hosted by School of Law of the Autonomous University of Madrid. Participants highlighted the need for flexibility and for strengthening social dialogue.

A number of challenges that impact the sustainability of the sector were identified, including cost, digitalization and the push toward zero emissions. Social partners emphasized the importance of supporting inclusion, specifically by increasing investments in training. Both cases highlighted how social partners effectively managed the crisis during the initial period, even before receiving specific state supports for wages and employment.
