Opportunities for Remote Work at Airports: Lessons Learned from COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, airport operators had to develop strategies for maintaining the activity with social distancing. Some of them include remote work and remote learning. However, not all the tasks can be performed from home (e.g., real-time operations management). The goal of this synthesis would be to list the tasks and missions that airports have experimented in remote work, to explore the training sessions that can be... more »
