US DOT extends financial aid for essential air service carriers

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) will extend its financial support to airlines that cancel “Essential Air Service” (EAS) flights due to lack of demand stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.
The agency had already authorised paying 50% of subsidies for flights cancelled due to lack of demand as long as carriers serve the destinations with at least one round trip daily, six days weekly. In Alaska, carriers must complete at least 50% of weekly schedules to receive payments.
