Airports and airlines are installing future technology in preparation for the reduction of travel bans.
Touchless technologies, such as digital toilet rows, and systems that monitor passengers’ temperatures between flights, will be used to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus.
High-tech security is already being installed at Avalon Airport in Melbourne, Victoria’s second busiest airport.
Airport boss Justin Giddings has installed a new safety screening system that eliminates the hassle of removing technology and liquids from carry-on bags, News.com.au reported.
He said the goal of advanced technology is to reduce public touch points and gather in Qatar.

The airport also has a touchless check-in screen and bag drop system installed.
Prior to the epidemic, airports were working to use touchless check-in screens to speed up the process. That technology will probably be used to prevent the virus from spreading.
Instead of handing over your passport, a biometric device can be used to scan passengers as soon as they check in.
Aaron Hornliman, chief executive of Elenium Automation, said aircraft services needed to be changed due to the epidemic.
He predicted security cards and food menus would be removed, instead they would be digitally accessible via your phone.
Rows for bathrooms will be removed, passengers will be forced to book spots through an app.
Airlines will probably introduce technology to track the health of passengers across aircraft.
“Just as Fitbit can track your sleep, an airline, for example, will be able to track your temperature,” he said.
Airport authorities will install new technology to ensure safe travel during epidemics, and airports will look different once travel begins.

‘So when you board the plane you may not have it on your side but you can develop a flight and the airline will be able to detect it and take appropriate action before landing.
“There are many applications of these types of technologies that will change our flight experience in the near future.”
The technology was originally designed for disabled passengers but has been adapted to ensure that customers cannot touch ordinary surfaces.
In the last seven months, Australia’s domestic flights have been shut down for ১ 1.8 billion, while international flights have been valued at ১ 1 billion.

About 34,000 people have lost their jobs and fake jobs, leaving the country’s two largest carriers with about 11,500 employees.
The first step towards international travel has already begun, with New Zealand entering Australia under unilateral management.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is expected to make an announcement about her Australian trip when she is sworn in to her new cabinet this week.
The move would mean Australians will be able to travel abroad for the first time since March 20, when international borders were closed and only concessions were made in extreme cases.
Robot cleaning systems will probably be introduced at airports. Plain toilets will use sterile lights after each use

Federal Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham said on Thursday that the separation-free travel between the two countries would be a recognition of the extent to which both countries have conducted COVID-19.
While Europe and North America are suffering from more horrific waves of the virus with thousands of people, Australia and New Zealand have escaped relatively contagious.
Jenny Da Rin, deputy head of the Seaweed Co-ordination Unit at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said about 2,000 New Zealanders had entered Australia since the border was relaxed on October 1.
