The Future of Airport Design After COVID-19

An interesting article featured in Forbes Magazine contained an interview with an airport architect who was asked what changes might be expected in airport design in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The architect suggested that airport terminals might get larger so that travelers have more space and feel safer.  He also shared that the airport security area might be relocated to better make use of space.  In addition, self-screening systems, that do both security and health screenings, might be employed.  Finally, there might be virtual lines so that large groups of passengers are not clustered together for long periods in a confined space prior to boarding.
