Airport Innovation in a Time of COVID


As of the time of writing, the global reported coronavirus cases has exceeded 90 million and almost 2 million people have died amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. This is more than 2 times the population of a country like Fiji. However, the impact of Covid-19 is not just on human health. The economy is badly affected as well with a huge number of brick and mortar shops closed and many enterprises going bankrupt because of a slowdown in business. In the same vein, the airport industry has also suffered heavily. Adding contactless solutions, increasing the level of sanitation and keeping social distancing for both passengers and employees have never been so important for airports.
