“We are by no means out of this situation, we will only be satisfied, or at least know that we really move a notch, when all our planes are in the sky, we turn as many people back into flying and operating our flights, which I expect that to be in October or November of this year,” Weiss told an online conference on Wednesday.

The news comes a day after airline stocks fell, as a new Indian variant of Covid-19 stoked fears about easing restrictions.
