As one leg of its slated 3000-store expansion over the coming years, Amazon is preparing to place its digital-first, convenience-driven shop in major airports across the country

Mega e-tailer Amazon is bringing its cashierless Go stores to American airports. Amazon Go is the brand’s unmanned store that offers customers a quick way to grab what they need and go without lines or wait times—making it particularly apt for airport environments.

The stores require the scan of a credit card to enter and all purchases are tracked by cameras and billed after customers exit, simplifying purchases for harried travelers.  Amazon plans to bring the stores to some of the U.S.’s busiest international airports, including locations like San Jose, Los Angeles and Dallas Fort Worth.

Amazon Go started its expansion several months back, and is slated to open upwards of 3000 more over the next few years. While expanding into airport territory may subject the retailer to certain restrictions and protocol, it will also provide the opportunity for further trial and development of the cashierless concept.
