Travelers can already face much longer queues when they go through security, with more restrictions and controls required for safety and health reasons.

Urban Strategies & Design Director of Gensler architecture firm Ian Mulcahey spoke to Sun Online Travel about how airports will look to the future.

Drinking at the bar with all your friends can be a thing of the past, with only pre-ordered food and drinks, as well as tables.

He explained: "Operators will always be satisfied in number with the amount of time spent shopping and eating while waiting for flights."

"However, everyone will want to reduce the queues, so if you can get a gradual flow of people and people to pre-order before you arrive, you can minimize congestion."

"Food is more complicated, but then again, you may need to book tables at the food outlets and book meals at the outlets, trying to reduce the pressure."

There may be fewer dining rooms and fewer chairs to meet the social distancing rules: many stations must close common areas and only open at 30% of their capacity.

This could also extend to airport terminals, notoriously busy areas.

Technologies already tested, such as facial recognition and electronic passport doors, may need to be implemented sooner than expected.

Ian warned: "Airlines are going to have to adapt their systems, instead of saying that everyone has to check in at times, people may have check-in slots.

"If you have to leave your luggage, why not spread out the passenger arrival points at the airport instead of the rush hour of everyone arriving at the same time?

"The same goes for security. Suppose your flight is at 2:00 p.m., you may be asked to drop by between 12:00 p.m. and 12:15 p.m., the next time between 12:15 p.m. and 12:30 p.m."

Selection processes are also under discussion, with countries that fail to agree on a universal measure.

While some airports do thermal analyzes and assessments, others like London Heathrow have yet to implement it.

However, they announced that tests were underway as they sought to introduce contactless security measures and UV technology to ensure the safety of travelers.

Other countries are asking for health passports to prove that the traveler does not have a coronavirus, but it is not yet known how they will be implemented.

Ian said: "There is a big question of whether people should be screened before traveling.

"There will be all kinds of complications from countries that say they should be assessed before takeoff."

"These things must be agreed internationally so that one country does not impose a package and another country establishes something else."

"Countries that relax self-isolation controls, and those that are still in the pandemic, lead to inequalities in the way the virus spreads and increases the complication.

"The reverse is also true: if the UK overcomes the pandemic, but still continues elsewhere, we could also say that people should be assessed here before boarding."

The current problem is having the technology to prove that the virus has not yet reached.

He explained: "The difficulty right now is that we don't have a clear test to show if people have had it or are immune to it."

"There is evidence to show that you have it right now, but it's hard to find one to see if people can no longer have it."

However, Ian reiterates that the first wave of travelers will be in small numbers, which means that social remoteness will be more manageable.

He added: "Everyone anticipates slower and more gradual demand, with fewer flights and fewer people traveling, there will be fewer business and vacation trips.

"The challenge will be growing demand, with more scheduled flights but still requiring social distance."

"I think June is the time when people will start thinking about traveling again, even if it can be an essential trip."

"Many people will be careful.

"It will take time for people to feel safe in the whole process of getting out of the house to get there, but also in what the destination will offer them."

London Heathrow airport chief warned that social distance would be impossible at airports, as each plane would have a 1 km boarding queue.

Air passengers arriving at Hong Kong International Airport at this time will need to undergo a coronavirus test before leaving the airport, which will take up to 12 hours before being allowed to enter the city.

Other airport health and safety measures include improved disinfection methods, hand disinfection stations and anti-virus cleaning robots called Whiz, which are equipped with UV light sterilizers and air sterilizers.
