In today’s highly technological and digital world everything runs at a fast pace.
You read fast, you walk fast, you order fast, you eat fast. But then, why don’t you travel fast?
Long lines at airports are a familiar and disliked phenomenon to almost every traveller.
Digital boarding passes and self-service terminals have become very common at most
airports but still, air travel is far from being a fast and efficient experience.


The digital passport app is best understood as an extension of the services of
the US government’s web presence. The app is designed to make air travel faster and more
convenient. By utilizing digital technology, such as biometric data or a digital version of
the passport, it aims at speeding up processes like customs control or simply boarding
a plane. The traveler can access documents and travel history in one secure place.
