In order to safely restart the aviation system, airlines and their supply chain partners (airports, ANSP, ground handlers) need to be ready and meet regulatory requirements to resume and maintain operations throughout the recovery. This also requires having sufficient capacity to meet the recovering demand.

This guidance material is meant to assist aircraft operators and their supply chain partners in these efforts.
