IATA VP Americas Peter Cerda, via his personal LinkedIn account, commented (09-Jul-2020) on the reactivation of aviation in Colombia, stating he held a meeting with Colombia's President Iván Duque Márquez and Minister of Transport Ángela María Orozco to urge the Government to provide a specific date for the restart of domestic operations while maintaining the current date of 01-Sep-2020 for international operations. Mr Cerda stated: "Overland buses can operate in the country so aviation must also be given this option. Unfortunately, the Government could not yet provide a specific date for the restart of domestic operations and continues to pursue the test phase with specific pilot flights". He added: "We will engage municipalities and mayors across the country to push for flights between key cities".

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes stated (09-Jul-2020) "We have been presented with proposals in various forms of capital raising, be it debt or equity, and are in ongoing discussions with numerous parties, including investment banks, lenders, as well as interested investors". Mr Fernandes added the group has received "indications" from certain financial institutions to support a request for funding, amounting to over MYR1 billion (USD234.6 million). Of this debt funding, a certain portion would be eligible for the government guarantee loan under the Danajamin Prihatin guarantee scheme in Malaysia. Mr Fernandes said Philippines AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia are also in various stages of bank loan applications. Philippines AirAsia applied for a government guaranteed loan under the Philippine Economic Stimulus Act, with an "expected positive outcome".
