Airports are reopening and some airlines are either making a return to the air or increasing the number of flights they operate per day.

But the coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we travel, possibly forever, and cramming into packed terminals and joining jostling lines is no longer viable.

From cutting-edge tech to overhauled check-in procedures, we take a look at some of the steps being taken to minimize risk as we return to the skies.

Many airports will need to do a little shape-shifting and revise their layouts to ensure social distancing is possible.

One-way systems may be necessary to keep people moving smoothly through terminals, for example, while airports will need to make space for new testing areas and extra check-in machines.

Research company Gensler suggests lining up areas should be limited, seating areas reconfigured and check-in areas spread throughout the terminal.
