COVID-19 Control Measures and Temperature Checks at Airports
As the world is suffering from the COVID-19 global pandemic, there has been a growing desire to implement temperature checks at airports to identify individuals who may be unwell. Besides automated temperature check kiosks, the use of self-service technology in airports has grown largely over the last decade. In most airports, you will find self-service kiosks for self-check-in, baggage drop and passport control. The main driver for self-service technology in airports is to reduce wait times. As aviation grows and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) forecasts that air passengers will double in the next twenty years, reducing wait times becomes vital to maintaining good customer experience in airports.
