Since last May 15, all passengers who come from abroad have passed a temperature control that, from July 1, will be automated with thermal imaging cameras due to the increase in traffic at airports.

In addition, the Passenger Location Card (PLC), the record for the location of the passenger that is now completed on the plane and delivered by hand at the temperature control, will be digitized to also contribute to more fluid transit through the airport. Note: see update above, as per 1.7.2020.

The airport manager, Aena, will collaborate with the Foreign Health Ministry in these tasks of sanitary surveillance and control by signing an agreement between both institutions, which establishes the terms of said collaboration.
