Jan De Nys of Retail Estates told VRT Radio 2 Antwerp that the drones are “handier than stewards”.
The drones give the following message to customers as they fly by: "Dear customer, we are pleased to see you all again. We ask you to always keep a distance of 1.5 metres, also when you are on the car park. Thank you for respecting the rules on safety”.
Jan De Nys of the company that owns the retail park, retail estates told VRT Radio 2 Antwerp that “Drones are more efficient than people. They are more mobile and you can deploy them everywhere more easily. By using them we hope to be able to keep the rush under control”.
Shoppers are generally positive about the use of the drones. "A very good idea, it gives you a feeling of security”, one shopper said.
"It never a bad idea to remind people about the measures. Just as long as they don’t use the drones to hand out fines”, another shopper joked.
