BKK to get passport scanners

THAILAND: Suvarnabhumi Airport, in Bangkok, has invested more than B76 million on an automatic passport inspection system to address the problem of overcrowding at the immigration checkpoints.

Deputy director of the airport, Wilaiwan Nadwilai, said eight machines will be installed at the arrival section and another eight at the departure section.

Passengers will be able to check themselves in and out without the need for immigration officials.

This is expected to reduce the immigration processing time from 45 seconds per person to 25 seconds.

The airport expects the system to go online at the end of the year.
