Scan face to take flights at Hongqiao

SOME passengers can now board planes by simply scanning their faces at the T1 terminal of the Hongqiao airport.

Xiamen and Hebei airlines have opened the facial recognition system, which means that passengers no longer need to show boarding passes or identity cards before boarding.

Both airlines have relocated their flights and services to the T1 terminal of the Hongqiao airport since late November.

Passengers still need to show identity cards or passports at security check points.

The T1 reopened a year ago after a three-year renovation, and features China’s first self-service and paperless check-in and boarding procedures.

Over 20 self-service check-in machines allow passengers to print tickets, check luggage and board without queuing at staffed counters.

The paperless check-in and boarding procedures also cover all domestic flights at Hongqiao airport’s T2.
