It seems that the business rescue practioners have made an undisclosed deal with the South African government.

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

The Netherlands has issued a code orange for Barcelona, number 2 destination for AMS Schiphol Airport (after LHR).
For Brussels Airport, Barcelona and Madrid are almost equally the number 1 destination.

Code orange in the Netherlands means: do not travel for leisure (NL has green-yellow-orange-red).
