Passengers walk past a coronavirus face coverings sign at the North Terminal of Gatwick Airport near Crawley, just south of London, Wednesday, July 22, 2020.

Gatwick would in any normal year be expecting to fly some 85,000 holidaymakers on Friday alone. It expects less than 10,000 passenger departures on Friday. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
