COVID-19 has upset the travel industry and brought the world to a standstill. For the first time in history, almost 90% of the world's population now lives in countries with travel restrictions. Airlines, travel agencies and the tourism industry as a whole are among the most affected.
How will flights be after the pandemic?
We will travel again, but it will not be the same for some time. Even if borders reopen, travellers will need to be sure that boarding a plane is safe and that they can enter the country of destination. New health security protocols and systems will have to be in place, and these still need to be defined. 

The most immediate and perhaps most visible change will be the transition to contactless travel, starting from the airport sidewalk to hotel check-in. Even with the strict cleaning protocols in place, the exchange of travel documents and contact surfaces through check-in, security, border control and boarding still represent a significant risk of infection for travellers and staff alike.
How will flights be after the pandemic?
Contactless options will come into play, including technologies for data entry and document scanning while avoiding contact and even voice commands. Paper passports are still required as the main form of identity for travellers. In a contactless situation, the adoption of standardised digital travel credentials and initiatives will be accelerated and adapted to this new context.

Certainly in the short term, travel will be more defined by purpose. Any business travel will have to be strictly validated as an economic activity, with companies limiting the number of employees travelling for them. Countries will probably only open their borders where for good reason and where it is safe to let travellers pass. This could mean temporary visas and more documentation that you will need to take with you when you travel.
