The impact of COVID-19 on airport

How do post-coronavirus measures affect airport capacity and infrastructure?

Flights will be safer and healthier

In the same way that the September 11 attacks prompted regulatory changes that made flying safer, the COVID-19 crisis will make flying healthier as well.

In order to regain the trust of passengers so they start flying again, it’s necessary to take measures that will increase security in a post-Covid world, but will also – without a doubt – reduce capacity as well.

Social distancing and the obligatory use of face masks are among the measures that will reduce capacity.

In AERTEC Solutions we have the knowledge, the capabilities and the international experience required to identify and solve the capacity problems in all the airport processes and procedures that will be affected by the new restrictions that arise after COVID-19.

Reconfiguration of HVAC systems or electromechanical equipment will play an important role in reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. It will also be necessary to verify the pavements where the aircraft have been parked.
