Weird scenes at airports around the world - parked planes, empty terminals (photo)
COVID-19 pandemic "stopped" the Earth. Billions of people stopped and took refuge in their homes. The borders are closed, the sights are deserted, the bars and restaurants have a lock on the door. The aeronautical industry is on the ground, properly and figuratively.
Airlines had to suspend tens of thousands of flights, stop thousands of planes on the ground. Nobody travels anymore. Airports are increasingly deserted. No, it's not a movie script. It is the worst reality of March 27, 2020.
Parked planes, empty terminals
I am a traveler, an explorer, but for several months I have not left the country. And for a few days I haven't left the house. #Sauincasa because life is beautiful and, by this measure now taken for social distance, I hope we can travel as soon as possible. But even more, I want to be healthy, then we will do them all.
I see pictures and videos of empty airports, with hundreds of planes lined up on the platforms, treads and runways of airports. I always liked the airports for their dynamics, for the ride in them. But now it's weird to see everything static.
According to figures provided by Cirium, no less than 8500 aircraft are detained on the ground worldwide.
Even the largest airports in the world restrict their activities. The largest airport in Romania, Henri Coanda - Otopeni, got to have a few flights, which is why it will restrict its daily activities.
It's sad! It's deserted!
