As we enter the normalization process, airports started to resume their flights one by one. We wrote an article about the precautions in the airport for those wishing to travel to or from the Aegean pearl, İzmir.  Knowing these precautions before going to İzmir Adnan Menderes Airport will help you during your time there. 

1- Movement Map

Movements of the passengers and employees are tracked in the airport and a crowd map is prepared based on the movements. This map allows authorities to better control the crowded areas.

There are floor signs to direct you about social distancing as you enter the airport. Passengers are not allowed in without a mask and your body temperature is measured via thermal cameras at the entrance. If your temperature is higher than desired, you will not be allowed in the airport.
