What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis?

While every airport has planned for incidents such as mass casualties, natural disasters and manmade events, very few have put in place systems to mitigate the risk of communicable disease transmission. Airports can gauge and manage this risk present throughout the passenger journey by deploying Seamless Flow and Identity Management clearance systems. The installation of these systems can be done without adding to or conducting any substantial remodelling of the existing terminals. Since pathogens can have a sustained impact on airport operations, it directly and indirectly affects the benefits they deliver to local communities, nations at large and the world in general. Large airports support thousands of aviation jobs, passenger spending at hotels, restaurants, rental car companies, entertainment venues, tourist attractions, and numerous other local businesses. This underscores the fact that continuity of operations at airports is an essential component of daily life as we currently experience it.
