Abstract

Today's COVID-19 situation has devastated the aviation industry, and as a result, airlines have great uncertainty about lower levels of air service, a slowdown in demand, and an unknown return to levels seen before 2020. While an airline's business model is vital for the company's overall success, this model does not just impact short-term results but also longterm survival. As the sector recovers from the recession, implementing the current course of action will have consequences. Even while crises can be destructive to economies and communities, they also offer opportunities for strategic change. This, then, encourages businesses and people to see things differently and even make changes to their thinking that they may not have been prepared to accept what was previously thought to be impossible or impractical. Covid-19 quickly and powerfully depleted the individual's social connections, placed them at risk of losing professional stability, and encouraged their isolation. Team collaboration has a more significant impact during a crisis because team collaboration raises morale, relieves stress, and fosters a sense of unity that helps the employees in the long run.
