COVID-19 Impact on Airport Operations and Capacity Webinar

In collaboration with
Airports Council International
COVID-19 Webinar on Airport Operations

Protecting passengers and staff from COVID-19 and applying the recommendations from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), ACI EUROPE and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) requires a substantial change in how airports manage their business.

This webinar presented the results of a study that aims to respond to two key issues:

  • Understanding the potential impact of COVID-related recommendations on airport operations;
  • How to optimise terminal processes and airport operations when taking account of these necessary changes on their overall performance.

The study, due to be released later in August, was commissioned by EUROCONTROL and carried out by the Airport Research Center (ARC) with input from 6 partners including ACI EUROPE, IATA, Charles-de-Gaulle, London Heathrow, Stuttgart and Swedavia Airports.
