German passenger Nani Stockmann encountered a close to deserted airport on March 18 when she arrived for her connecting flight at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France.
In a short vlog from the near-empty airport, she urges future passengers to check for updates on their flights before traveling.
As Stockmann, who had arrived in France from Brazil, made her way through the airport, she noted the array of retail businesses that have been forced to shut down in a bid to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All non-essential shops” at the airport were forced to close from March 15, with a number of travel restrictions being enforced by the French Government, as per the official airport website.
Charles de Gaulle Airport is one of the busiest in Europe, with official statistics claiming 76,150,007 passengers traveled through the airport in 2019.
Toward the end of the footage, Stockmann sings, “Everything is dead, it is the zombie apocalypse. But where are the zombies?” Credit: Nani Stockmann via Storyful
