Nuremberg: employees paint walls instead of aircraft handling

Due to the corona crisis, the volume of traffic at Nuremberg Airport is currently within tight limits. The airport got creative and used the staff, who had little work due to the low demand, elsewhere. Airport employees help out at the health department or repaint the walls.

Due to the low number of flights, however, many employees are currently unemployed. While some aircraft handling employees use the low-traffic time to help with painting, for example, others are active at the Nuremberg Health Department to provide support.

Instead of weighing suitcases on the baggage carousel or creating loading plans, employees at the airport have been working at the Nuremberg Health Department for two months and are supporting the Corona team. Different teams work on different tasks there. Some keep in touch with infected people by phone, other colleagues identify contact persons and look after them. The airport delegation is responsible for the certificate management, so it issues a confirmation of the quarantine to those who have tested positive and to contact persons. “The new areas of responsibility are a sensible challenge,” was the unanimous opinion.

From the airfield to the scaffolding: employees in aircraft handling are currently helping master painter Dieter Cerbin renovate the Cargo Center. Extensive painting work is usually outsourced to external companies because it would not be affordable for your own staff. It is different in Corona times, when actual activities are idle. Ralf Dorn, usually on the airfield, is happy that he can help. The demand for further painting work is great, but Dorn would prefer it “when the flights finally get going again”.
