Peach Aviation Limited (“Peach”; Representative Director and CEO: Shinichi Inoue) has announced that starting October 23, it will be introducing new automatic check-in machines (“new check-in machines”). Services will get underway with five new check-in machines at the Terminal 2 Building for international flights at Kansai Airport, with more to be set up at Peach’s other domestic airport destinations to follow.
The new check-in machine has been developed with a design and direction provided by architects. It will be equipped with a large monitor screen that is double the size of those of conventional check-in machines (32 inches compared with conventional 15-inch screens) and incorporate the use of cardboard as material for its exterior. It will be the first time*1 in the world that cardboard are used as material for check-in machines. Developed with a smart design through comprehensive concept design rendered by architects, the machine is an innovative new creation of a check-in machine that boasts both solidity as well as a sophisticated exterior that doesn’t appear at a glance to use cardboard.
