JAL introduces touchless check-in
Japan Airlines has announced the decision to trial new touchless technology at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, starting 24 August.
Located at Terminal 1 South Wing of Tokyo Hanadea Airport, the two kiosks have been installed for a trial period, initially until 15 September.
Developed by Mitsubishi Electric and Oki Electric Industry Co, the new kiosks are equipped with state-of-the-art touchless sensors. These enable passengers to complete the whole check-in process without having to touch the screen at any point in the process.
The kiosks use infrared technology, so passengers are able to make selections by holding their finger 3 cm away from the check-in screen.
JAL say they will continue to embrace new technology to provide customers with a safe and secure travel experience.
