Contactless Air Travel


Reduce operational costs and tackle the new safety challenges with smartphone based-scanning

Uncertain Times Create the Need for Rapid Digital Transformation

Airlines and airports must balance running lean operations with the need for contactless solutions that prioritize people’s safety and reassure passengers.

Scandit ID and barcode scanning software on smart devices is a fast and flexible way to make air travel safer and more contactless, while unlocking operational efficiencies and cost savings.

Make Passenger Check-in Contactless

Passenger Terminal Today found 71% of passengers say health is a greater priority than it was pre-2020. Airlines must counter these concerns and reduce risk for the foreseeable future.

Scanning-enabled mobile apps on smartphones provide a rapid, accessible solution for automating and streamlining passenger journeys:

  • Self-scan passports to check-in from home with mobile apps or on the web. No spelling mistakes, no queues, no fuss.
  • Scan the boarding pass to contactlessly self-print luggage labels.
  • Use smartphones to access secure lounges or gates – no need to interact with staff.

Make Boarding Flights Contactless

New safety measures are essential – but reducing pressure on budgets is too.. Anything that helps disperse passengers and make staff interactions more distantanced or contactless is a must – but avoiding unwelcome disruption is vital.

Deploying scanning-enabled smartphones to staff is one accessible, affordable solution. Efficiently complete boarding and passenger management with minimal contact, at distance.

With Scandit software on smart devices, agents can:

  • Safely scan boarding passes through plexi-glass barriers.
