Most likely, after the launch of a regular flight service on board, travelers will no longer be able to entertain themselves with magazines and newspapers, which they previously put in pockets on the backs of seats. Disinfectant wipes will take their place.

Experts also described what air passengers might face at the end of 2020. In the future, in many countries of the world, a special department will be organized responsible for the health of people at airports and air transport.

And at the airports it is planned to install contactless kiosks. They will help you get your boarding passes using code scanning or voice commands.
