Sydney’s airport deserted during coronavirus, becomes ‘eerie’ ghost town with few travellers – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation):

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.12343762 4x3 940x705
