This week the airport is hosting several one-on-one concerts in an empty terminal.
On May 8 and 10 single musicians will perform personal concerts for single listeners who will be each be seated at a safe distance.
The idea takes inspiration from artist Marina Abramović’s performance “The Artist Is Present.” The concept is to provide a personal musical experience despite the restrictions being caused by the corona pandemic.
Many of these airlines are also requiring that passengers wear masks during check-in, boarding and deplaning. And because an increasing number of airports are and soon will be requiring anyone in their terminals to wear masks, it’s a fair bet that wearing masks in airports is already the ‘new normal.’
