Moscow Domodedovo Airport in Russia has implemented precautionary measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus in the airport.
The airport has started using audio-visual channels that will inform passengers on how to protect themselves from the coronavirus.
Moscow Domodedovo Airport installed posters in the departure and arrival halls and plays audio messages every 15 minutes.
In addition, in the departure and arrival halls, hand sanitising stations will be provided for domestic and international passengers.
The airport has added special markings at the check-in counters and security checkpoints indicating a distance of 1.5 metres to ensure social distancing between passengers.
Domodedovo Airport added that it has installed other technologies to permit the use of electronic boarding passes.
Using a mobile boarding pass, passengers can pass through security screening and flight boarding.
As per the recommendations of the Rospotrebnadzor, the airport has increased its cleaning efforts and is using special disinfectants.
Rospotrebnadzor is Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing.
Surfaces such as wheelchair armrests, chairs, ambulifts and luggage trolleys, which are frequently touched, are being given additional treatment.
In the first two months of this year, Moscow Domodedovo Airport served around four million passengers, registering a year-to-year increase of 15%.
Last week, Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow announced its plans to close the arrivals and departures at Terminal D from 1 April amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The airport stated that the measure was implemented due to the reduced passenger traffic, as well as the travel restrictions imposed on international air transportation.
