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 this new 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.
How to use the self-boarding gates
1. Remove your face covering and look at the camera
2. Gate opens
3. Replace your face covering and enjoy your flight
*e-Boarding Gates are being progressively introduced at Hong Kong International Airport throughout 2021.
