Brasília Airport closed the month of August with 401,316 passengers, an increase of 54.1% compared to July. In the period, 5,532 landings and takeoffs were carried out. This is the fourth consecutive month in which the Brasiliense terminal has registered an increase in movement since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Gradually, air operations are resumed, but the effects of the pandemic are still part of the daily life at Brasília Airport: in the month, the flow was still 68.87% less than that registered in August 2019.

Brasília Airport has taken some sanitary measures to fight the coronavirus. Passengers’ temperature is checked both when boarding. When disembarking, alcohol gel dispensers have been installed throughout the air terminal; social distancing rules are restricted on the floor, and hygiene has been intensified. Besides, the use of a mask is mandatory throughout the air terminal.

For the head of Air Business at Inframerica, manager of the airport, Roberto Luiz, although the movement is still lower than the pre-COVID-19, the resumption of operations has been happening gradually, month by month. “We made several adjustments to our terminal, as well as the airlines, and this is bringing more confidence to the user. The work is being carried out with great caution and attention. Anyone who needs to travel will notice all the changes we are making so that they can fly more smoothly”, he says.
