Airports across the country are revamping their post lockdown strategies with extreme measures to ensure the safety of the passengers and employees, once lockdown ends.

Delhi Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. Authorities have adopted many safety measures to follow for safe passage of people while following the guidelines issued by the central government.

A team of 500 sanitation professionals is on duty to conduct regular disinfection drives every hour including desks, chairs, railings, elevators, trolleys, handles, baggage belts, trays, and etc. Seats, aerobridges, and other places are marked with coloured tapes to ensure safe social distancing for workers. The whole airport is also being cleaned daily by theĀ airport operators.
