Air travel in the EU seems increasingly within reach. The German Airport Association has published a list of measures it hopes will keep passengers safe - and keep flights in the air.

Coronavirus travel restrictions are slowly being lifted around Europe, and with the possibility of air travel picking back up in the near future, the German Airport Association (ADV) has published a guideline laying out hygiene measures airports intend to follow in order to reduce the risk that passengers and employees will become infected while traveling by plane.

Compared to April and May last year, passenger volume in Germany was down 99%, the association said.

"What is important is the signal to travelers and politicians that the airports are prepared and are taking all necessary measures," the guide said.

The guideline, published on the ADV website on Tuesday, consists of a list of recommendations drawn up and backed by experts from all ADV airports in cooperation with airport medical professionals.
