During this Coronavirus crisis, there are ghost passengers and ghost flights, as there are no passengers to fly and sometimes planes fly just with the crew and a few passengers or no passengers at all. However, there are also ghost airports, which are not only airports that are no longer used, but also special airports with no passengers!!!!
Surprisingly, among these, you can find some of the most profitable airports in the world, like the one in the Mojave desert or the one in Teruel , which is the most profitable one in Europe. But how can this be possible? Have a look at these newspaper articles and documentaries and you'll find out:
The huge ghost airport where planes go to sleep (Sky Shades)
Spotting at Teruel – Spain’s storage and maintenance airport (Airport Spotting)
The biggest and most profitable airport without passengers in Europe is in Teruel (Expansión) This piece of news is in Spanish. It includes a very interesting video!!!
Chinese group buys Spanish airport for $11,000 (CGTN America)
