Airport specialist retailer Hudson has tied up an agreement to use Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology in some of its travel convenience stores, with the first one set to open by March at Dallas Love Field Airport.
The test store called Hudson Nonstop is also a new concept for the Dufry-owned retailer—the name is based on the idea that travelers do not need to wait to make any purchases. A spokesperson for Hudson told Forbes.com: “By seamlessly entering the store with a quick scan of their credit card, grabbing the items they’re looking for and then exiting, purchases can be made almost instantaneously.”
Cameron Janes, vice president of physical retail at Amazon, said: “The addition of Just Walk Out technology will help busy travelers to avoid waiting in line. They can pick up what they need and make their flight faster.”
