Contactless boarding

Smile, board, enjoy your flight

Hong Kong International Airport’s e-Boarding Gates make boarding your next flight a completely contactless experience.

The e-Boarding Gates use biometric technology to scan your face and streamline the boarding process, helping to minimise contact across your journey. 

The whole process is touch-free, fast and simple. Watch our video to see what to expect.

When you arrive at the airport

To take advantage of the contactless boarding experience, you’ll need to use a valid electronic travel document to pass through the initial e-Security Gates. Please note that using a Hong Kong Identity card will not enable you to use the e-Boarding Gates.
