You could use your heartbeat instead of a passport in futureWed 29 Mar 2023
World: Well, passports will soon be a thing of the past, according to easyJet, with passengers having their heartbeats scanned in order to get through airport security.
That would certainly remove a lot of the flight day stress, eh? But how long will it be until it the airport scanners are looking at your heartbeat rather than your passport, which includes a photo the majority of us cannot stand?
According to academics such as Professor Birgitte Andersen, Professor Graham Braithwaite, Dr Patrick Dixon, futurist Shivvy Jervis, and Dr Melissa Sterry, the year this could be in place is 2070.
The leading academics did the predictions as part of easyJet’s 2070: The Future Travel Report, which as the name suggests, makes predictions about the future of travel.

The removal of those dreaded passports is not the only thing included in the report, as in 50 years time, passengers may not even need to take luggage with them.
Yes, no more worries about if you have exceeded the 22kg limit, the clothes will be there waiting for you on holiday.
At arrival, guests would choose from a selection of 3D printed, recyclable clothes, plus a 3D buffet that would be printed to each individual’s preferences.
Perhaps one of the most impressive and maybe unrealistic predictions included in the report is the ability to ‘try before you buy’.
The report says that bionic and Meta holiday previews will allow holiday goers to see, hear, smell, and feel their destination before booking the tickets.
