Japan Airlines is testing touchless check-in kiosks at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
The airline will be trialling the new technology at Terminal 1 at the South Wing (Departure Level – Counter 18) until September 15.
The new kiosks are equipped with touchless sensors, which allow customers to complete the check-in process without actually touching the screen, according to JAL.
The airline says through the use of infrared technology, customers will be able to make selections by “holding their finger 3 cm away” from the screen.
“JAL will continue to embrace new technology to provide customers with a safe and secure travel experience,” reads a statement from the carrier.
A number of airlines have rolled out touch-free check-in services in an effort to address passenger concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. Recently, carriers such as Air Asia and United have introduced contactless check-in options for passengers.
