As a result of COVID-19's spread, airports and airlines all over the world have been forced into shutdown. The paper highlights how travel processes must change moving forward, to prevent any shutdown in world travel. The topics discussed are:

  • How existing travel processes make the industry very vulnerable in the face of pandemics.

  • What technologies are available & how they can be leveraged to create a futuristic and resilient travel experience, thus keeping general populations safe from exposure to viruses.

  • How decentralization of the airport will make travel more resilient to pandemics & how to implement these changes starting today.
