EasyJet’s new hand luggage feature


EasyJet has become the first UK airline to offer a feature on its app which enables customers to scan their cabin bag to check its size before they travel to the airport.

The new app feature, which uses Apple’s ARKit 2 technology, is available on iOS initially and sits on easyJet’s app.

The app works by using augmented reality technology combined with customers’ smart phone cameras (iPhone 6S upwards).

The scan itself provides an on-screen 3D box which when combined with the phone’s camera sizes the cabin bag and indicates whether it fits within the maximum dimensions.
