Jetting off on holidays is the most rewarding activity to end the year. But for most holiday travelers, a crowded airport with long queues and delays is often one of the most annoying places in the world. The thrill of travelling to a relaxing, beautiful place can usually be dampened by a frustrating airport experience. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, a state-of-the-art and pleasant international airport will unfold in 2040. The airport of the future features everything from biometric plane tickets and automated check-in desks to speedy molecular body scanners and virtual assistants at security checkpoints, Mirror reported.

Airport Parking and Hotels produced the said concept, suggesting that the check-in process in every international airport will become an automated doddle in 25 years. The concept predicts bag drop desks and staffed check-in will be phased out and replaced with automated self-service kiosks. Passengers won't also have to fumble with multiple bulky documents because they receive a biometric token, which serves as their ID, passport and boarding pass for their flight.

The token will contain unique biometric identifiers for each traveler including iris patterns, finger prints, and facial features. Airport security checkpoints are extremely important at airports, but bag inspections will soon be replaced to automated metal detectors. It also predicts laser molecular body scanners that are originally designed for medical use. It will be used to detect banned items such as bombs hidden in luggage or clothing. The technology allows people to just walk past an automated scanner instead of joining a queue and is effective even though a person is several meters away.

According to Irish Examiner, passengers will no longer have to queue to drop their bags off on departure. Luggage will be embedded with chips to make them traceable with the use of radio frequency. It can also send smartphone notifications when they are ready for collection at the destination. Drop-off points can be found in the train station, airport car park, coffee shops and restaurants - and perhaps even at passenger's hotels or homes.
