International flights have virtually disappeared due to the corona pandemic. In 2019 there were still a total of 12.5 million passengers, of which 4.3 million international. In 2020 it will have fallen to 4 million and unfortunately it will remain that way in 2021. At the end of 2020, 98 percent of previously scheduled flights were canceled. It is therefore a lot quieter than normal in terminal 1.
