Collins Aerospace is eliminating the need to physically touch kiosk screens during the airport check-in and baggage drop process by empowering travellers to use their own mobile devices. The company’s new Kiosk Connect solution provides a full, end-to-end, contactless airport journey.
By simply scanning a QR code with their mobile device, passengers can quickly connect to a common use kiosk using either the airport’s public Wi-Fi or the kiosk’s built-in Wi-Fi, with no requirement to download any apps.
From there, users complete the check-in process on their phones and produce boarding passes and bag tags without ever touching the kiosk screen.
“When combined with our secure biometric solutions and self-service airport products, this new feature enables travellers to experience a contactless airport journey all the way from check-in to boarding,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, Vice President and General Manager, Information Management Services, Collins Aerospace.
“As we work to help the aviation industry rebuild passenger confidence in flying, it’s incredibly important to us to provide solutions to improve safety and which are easy to use.”
