Australia’s busiest airport normally handles around 1,000 flights daily.
“We’re now doing 10 flights a day, 20 if we’re lucky,” Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert says.
“150,000 people were coming through the airport every day, we’re now seeing 100, 200 people a day.”
The normally bustling kerbside drop-off area is deserted, with cleaners and security guards pacing.
To even enter the departures hall, you must have a ticket to fly that day.
Only a few food outlets remain open and on the other side of customs and security, duty-free shops are fenced off.
Staff are removing luxury goods from the shelves to stop them gathering dust and Australian souvenirs are piled into baskets.
