On March 26, the government began considering a moratorium on airport fee payments for airlines being forced to suspend or reduce flights due to the coronavirus outbreak. Delays in payment of landing and parking fees for a few months would be allowed. This could be extended depending on the situation of the virus. The government will also consider a moratorium on aviation fuel tax payments. The government wants to support airlines’ management by providing public assistance as the companies are expected to see a huge drop in revenues. (Abridged)
