Munich Airport prepares for a rebound in passenger volumes
Munich Airport CEO, Jost Lammers, has said: “We offer the highest safety and our customary standard of service.”
Munich Airport has begun preparations for a rebound in air traffic and increasing passenger figures with an extensive package of measures to protect against infection.
Travellers are to be informed of rules of conduct through regular announcements, posters, video screens and a heavier staff presence.
The frequency of cleaning throughout Munich Airport will be increased and surfaces will be disinfected in all areas of the airport where passengers linger.
Hand sanitiser dispensers will be provided for passengers and both passengers and employees are required to wear face masks in all airport terminal buildings.
At check in, the security checkpoint and other areas where passengers may have to queue, lines and floor markings have been used to ensure passengers adhere to the minimum distances. Plexiglas panels have also been installed wherever passengers and employees are in direct contact.
In order to prevent lines from forming, Munich Airport advises all passengers to check in online if possible.
In Terminal 2, a new service including six vending machines – four prior to security and two in the gate area – are available for passengers to purchase face masks, disinfectant wipes and other health and safety products.
“We anticipate that as the coronavirus restrictions are eased, the demand for air travel will rise and supply on the airline side will increase again. At the same time, we strive to offer the highest safety to passengers and employees while also providing travellers with the high standard of service they are accustomed to,” explained Jost Lammers, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen München GmbH.
