To help combat this situation, a handful of startups in Europe and also globally have come up with some innovative technologies such as electronic bag tags, tracking of people and baggage flow, contactless biometrics, etc. to curb the spread of the virus. Consequently, we take a look at what kind of solutions these tech startups are offering to the airports of the world.
