Taking a flight is going to be dramatically different from before as the world gradually recovers and readies for a new age of air travel after an unprecedented pandemic in 2020. The topmost priority on any journey will be safety, enhanced by new measures to ensure hygiene and cleanliness at airports and on flights.

Airports will need to process passengers in a safe, efficient and contactless manner. Hygiene will be an important factor in winning back travelers’ confidence to take to the skies again.

The good news is that the technology is ready to deliver a frictionless, “touchless” journey from checking in to boarding, then all the way on to a traveler’s destination.

By 2024, passenger levels will return to 2019 levels, predicts the International Air Transport Association (IATA) .

Crucial in this new era is an enhanced passenger journey. Together with NEC, airports, airlines and governments around the world are set to deploy innovative solutions for a transformative experience in air travel.
