Risks & Challenges
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, it impacted the aviation industry particularly severely. Airports were seen as places that were particularly susceptible to spreading COVID-19. IGA had to find an efficient and practical way to minimize this risk, ensure passengers could pass through the airport safely, and keep the airport and air travel going as much as possible during lockdown.
To spot anyone coming into the airport with a high temperature range, guards used handheld devices to measure each person. But this was slow, inefficient and, because of the high volume of people, the devices would start to overheat and not work effectively.
