This is the sky above the Heathrow airport in London, United Kingdom at 12.50 pm on Tuesday.
Heathrow used to be world's busiest airport, a few years ago. Even at this time last year, you could see a plane, at every two-minute interval, in the skies above Heathrow.
It's really sad to see just three planes at the same location; perhaps, they may be just cargo planes.
Let's think about the haemorrhage of income for those who rely on a functionning airport:
- Airport staff
- Catering companies
- Security companies
- Cleaning companies
- Engineering companies
- Duty free shops
- Fuel suppliers
- Many more...
Online-work is not a substitute for most of these positions. The damage of the pandemic to the industry is just beyond comprehension.
