Aéroport de Nice Côte d’Azur Nice Côte d’Azur Airport to test contactless check-in for two months

As a result of the pandemic, international airports have adjusted their R&D priorities: after having worked on a “seamless” passenger experience, notably by using biometrics

to speed up each stage of the airport journey, it is now time for contactless check-in.

Nice airport is no exception to the rule, with the launch on December 6 of its new “contactless” check-in service. A new feature developed with its partner EASIER, which will be tested for two months with two airlines: Air France

and Air Corsica.

During this test phase, passengers will be able to control the self-service check-in kiosks from their smartphones. After scanning the QR code displayed on the kiosk’s screen, the kiosk will recognize the smartphone in question and lock onto it to secure the process. The traveler then chooses his or her airline and flight, defines the check-in procedure for himself or herself and his or her baggage, and prints out the boarding pass and baggage tag.

The

aim is to limit the spread of viruses in the context of a health crisis, without lengthening the check-in process

.

health safety will remain a major issue in air transport in the future

Improving air filtration in our terminals, putting in place all the conditions to ensure that barrier procedures are respected and maintaining our continuous surface disinfection operations are all ways of limiting the risk of viruses spreading,” notes Franck Goldnadel, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Côte d’Azur Airports. ” We are convinced that health safety will remain a major issue in air transport in the future and we intend to do everything we can to increase the confidence of passengers, ground staff, flight crews and all those who work on our platform

,” he continues.
