Airport Pandemic Response Technologies Guidebook

The Covid-19 Pandemic has had a more deleterious effect on the worldwide aviation system than anything that has come since the Wright Brothers first set wing to wind in the early 1900's, eclipsing even the impacts associated with the September 11th attacks in 2001. The governmental guidelines (in some municipalities, stated as requirements), for physical distancing (the now-infamous six-foot rule), may work manually and intuitively in the heat of the crisis, given the historically low passenger volumes. However, that simply will not scale, as passenger traffic returns in force, with all of the pent-up demand for air travel. Health screening and other related requirements, such as face coverings/masks, may become a part of a future reality, and the what, where and how of that prospect should be fully reviewed.
