Beijing's new airport going high-tech

Travelers will be able to pass through customs inspections faster and more seamlessly than ever at soon-to-be-opened Beijing Daxing International Airport.

“The new airport is equipped with the best inspection technologies in China. Our goal is to significantly cut inspection times and make travelers more comfortable,” said Gao Ruifeng, deputy director of Beijing Customs.

‘Imperceptible inspections’ means from getting off the aircraft to baggage claim, people who have obeyed China’s customs regulations don’t need to wait in line or lift their luggage onto inspection machines themselves anymore.

The new airport, located 46 kilometers south of the capital’s downtown district, is expected to open later this month.
