Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Qatar has launched a trial of new contactless technologies as it seeks to improve the safety of its staff and passengers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative involves testing happyhover and SITA Mobile Solution technology to enable contactless self-check-in and baggage drops at the airport.
The kiosk screens with happyhover technology will enable passengers to make commands through hand gestures without touching the surface.
On the other hand, the SITA Contactless Kiosk Solution allows passengers to control the kiosk screen from their mobile phones. This is enabled when the user scans QR codes to connect their mobile phone via WiFi to the SITA Remote Control App.
