Castellón airport has resumed regular flights on Wednesday after a three-month hiatus due to the Covid-19 health crisis, with “strict” protection and health control measures. The first plane from Budapest will be joined in the coming days by those from London, Vienna, Katowice, Bucharest and Bilbao.
The flight from the Hungarian capital, operated by the airline Wizz Air, has marked the return of scheduled operations, which have been interrupted since 23 March. Over the next two weeks, the rest of the scheduled routes will be added, according to a statement by the Government of Catalonia.
Under the supervision of the External Health Department, temperature controls have been implemented for passengers and access to the terminal has been restricted, limiting it to those who are travelling, in addition to the obligatory use of masks inside the building.
There are also hygiene, social distancing and information measures, following the airport’s contingency plan: reinforcement of cleaning and disinfection in common areas, protective screens at counters and safety filters, signaling the safety distance between people, hydroalcoholic gel dispensers or reinforcement of information.
The Councillor for Mobility, Arcadi España, has supervised the restart of the commercial activity and has highlighted the compliance with the regulations to offer the maximum security guarantees. “Despite the crisis in the aviation sector associated with the pandemic, this summer Castellón airport will reach its record number of regular flights, operating seven routes to six destinations,” he said.
