European Airport Adopts Social Distancing Strategy Other Airports Could Learn From

Green with envy.

Munich airport is encouraging people to keep a safe distance away from each other via the use of cardboard paper signs.

Images obtained by DMARGE show that Munich has opted for a greener looking approach to social distancing than Singapore, where it was recently revealed they were using what appears to be a plastic covering for middle seats.

Munich has also, it appears, started seeing an uptick in commerical passenger traffic again, after numbers dropped spectacularly in 2020.  An overview of annual figures of Munich Airport shows that passenger volume of commercial traffic fell from 47,941,348 in 2019 to 11,112,773 in 2020.
