Covid-19: Groupe ADP implements thermal cameras on arrivals for international flights at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport

After several week of experimentation with volunteer employees, Groupe ADP announces the setting up of a thermal cameras system, so that all passengers at their arrivals in Paris can benefit from a temperature measurement and be offered support medical at the airport.
In addition with all others sanitary measures, this initiative already settled up for several weeks from departures to arrivals, aims to strengthen the ecosystem of trust offered to travelers.

The temperature will be taken in the luggage delivery room through a thermal camera device that will alert an operator on site if a certain temperature degree threshold is exceeded. If this is the case, the passenger will be invited to carry out a doubt removal by contactless thermometer.If his temperature is confirmed, he will be offered a medical assistance during which the doctor will suggest, if necessary, to carry out a COVID-19 PCR Test. The Emergency Medical service (EMS) of Paris-Charles de Gaulle's Airport, as part of a protocol to be finalized with the Robert-Ballanger intercommunal hospital center of Aulnay-sous-Bois Villepinte, is responsible for this implementation.

This operating mode, widely practiced worldwide, is implementing in 18 airports of our international airports, allowing us to develop know-how in this area. We share the same group-wide health requirements around the measure settled and the challenge is to be met so that citizens around the world can find their way back to our airports with confidence.
"We want passengers around the world to find restored confidence in air transport. We offer the best possible framework for trust thanks to high level of heath requirements measures throughout the journey. By deciding to spread on arrival thermal cameras systems at Paris, we offer an ultimate health reinsurance for our compatriots and also for all the passengers" said Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Groupe ADP.
All along the passenger's path in airport, Groupe ADP has already implemented various measures and adapted its process:
  • the compulsory wearing of a mask;
  • the signage to enforce physical distance;
  • some automatic hydro alcoholic gel dispensers;
  • a strengthening of disinfection and cleaning procedures with a virucidal product;
  • an adaptation of security control process to limit physical contacts.
In addition, there are security process or departures, settled by airlines such as temperature measurement at the boarding gate, and a declaration of none Covid-19 symptoms.
