Japan Airlines (JAL) has started a trial of touchless self-service check-in kiosk at Tokyo`s Haneda Airport.
The self-service kiosks have state-of-the-art touchless sensors, which allow passengers to complete the check-in process without actually touching the screen.
The kiosks use infrared technology so that passengers can make their selections by holding their finger 3 centimeters away from the kiosk screen.
The trial lasts from August 24 to September 15, 2020. It is at Tokyo Haneda Airport Terminal 1 South Wing (Departure Level – Counter 18) and includes two kiosks.
The touchless system comes from Mitsubishi Electric and Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd.
