Streamline and transform your passenger experience, whilst increasing your efficiencies with our digital self-service airline kiosks. Explore our range of airline kiosks and their many features, including check-in, baggage drops, passport scanning, ticket and boarding pass printing, and digital signage solutions.
Digital airline kiosks introduce an array of benefits such as vastly increasing the efficiency of check-in processes, reducing queueing times and creating upselling opportunities for passengers.
Our world-class digital airline kiosks maximize efficiency by automating and simplifying a range of tasks, allowing passengers to check-in, drop luggage and print boarding passes swiftly.
Our completely inclusive and interactive airline kiosk designs even integrate passport scanners, which can be a transformative solution for frictionless flights and higher-security airport access control.
Digital airport kiosks are more important than ever for helping improve the overall passenger satisfaction, but they also vastly improve airport efficiency and security.

Our range of airline kiosks are convenient and easy to use and are proven to speed up check-in processes which significantly reduce queuing times, therefore enhancing passenger experience at airports.
Typical functions at the point of check-in, such as scanning passports and printing boarding passes, are possible with our digital airline kiosks. Such automated functions have already been proven to vastly improve efficiency and productivity for airlines and airports alike.
Interactive self check-in kiosks integrated with passport scanners and boarding pass printers are becoming increasingly popular in the aviation industry as they increase efficiency and safety. Digital airline check-in kiosks are also a more hygienic way to also reduce the risk of spreading viruses.
We work with world-class printer and scanner partners in order to implement the highest quality products into our digital airline kiosks as seamlessly as possible. Whether it’s boarding pass printing, airplane ticket printing or baggage tag printing, our kiosks can do all in one convenient place. This significantly enhances the airport experience for all involved.
Incorporating these printers into our solutions not only offers convenience to passengers by saving their time, but also enables airports and airlines to optimise their resources more effectively. With less need for manual input in these areas, staff can be redeployed to other parts of the airport that may require more attention. This ultimately results in significant cost savings and an overall increase in airport productivity.
Our digital kiosks enable multiple integrations to facilitate more functionality. These include scanners, ID validation, cameras, payment devices and label / badge printers.
In September 2023, we partnered with our client, United Airlines, to demonstrate our full aviation kiosk range at Future Travel Experience in Los Angeles. With functions such as passenger check-in, passport scanning, wayfinding and even reporting lost or damaged baggage, our booth gave visitors the perfect opportunity to interact with and learn more about the benefits of adopting digital airline kiosks.
We were particularly delighted to showcase two modular airline kiosks that we designed and manufactured for United Airlines during our collaborative 2-year joint project. This project saw us create and roll out hundreds of future-proof kiosks across North America, and represents our ability to understand a client’s complex requirements and hone them into a compelling user-centric solution.
In recent years, global travel has changed dramatically and technology is now seen as an essential part of the passenger check-in experience. Interactive digital airline kiosks are at the forefront of the changes at airports and docks, border control, arrivals and departures, and during flights. Going forward, we predict a surge in biometric enrolment, prior to the day of travel and at border control. This technological development is already well underway and applied in various scenarios. This will also be a requirement under new EU-ESS regulations.
