From getting through security to boarding the aircraft, we got on a flight from London Luton to Palermo to see how Coronavirus has affected the aviation experience
I’ve just got to Luton airport, dropped off my luggage and cleared security in 12 minutes. It’s mid-August and doing that – especially with two kids in tow – would normally take quite a while. At this time of the year, this place should be heaving with snaking queues, screaming children and people tucking into pints of strong continental lager before their alarm would normally go off. Instead, it’s a breeze to coast through. Welcome to flying in the era of COVID-19.
