Corona mutation: Chaos at Hanover Airport - Dramatic cry for help: "Please help us"

For the travelers, however, it was anything but a relaxed situation.

Some passengers who were stuck in the transit area at Hanover Airport called for help in the picture.

“Hello, we are here at the airport in Hanover.

We are being held against our will, ”the newspaper quotes.

With young children and infants, travelers should spend the night on camp beds.

In the airport hall, however, the travelers were even more afraid of contracting the corona virus.

On photos of the airport, the sheet shows that the minimum distance is not always kept to the camp beds.

Even after a Covid test, you should not have left the airport.

Please help us get out of here.

We don't want to be held against our will, ”the newspaper quotes a traveler.

The uncertainty about one's own situation was also bad.

Accordingly, the passengers did not know how long they had to stay in the airport.

Apparently, no one was able to provide clear information on request.
