China Eastern Airlines (CEA) is making flying more straightforward and efficient through facial recognition technology adopted at the Beijing Daxing International Airport, which will soon see its first commercial flight.

Thanks to the new technology, passengers won't have to show ID cards or QR codes at the new airport. Through a quick facial scanning, they can finish all procedures, including buying tickets, checking in, baggage checking and boarding.

CEA flight attendants can also confirm the number of boarding passengers and help them locate their seats thanks to the facial recognition system at the gate, thus improving the efficiency of service and offering more convenience to the passengers.

In CEA's VIP lounge at Beijing Daxing International Airport, portable facial recognition devices carried by ground service staff can quickly identify passenger and flight information, ensuring that every passenger can board their plane on time.

What's more, smart displays have been jointly launched by CEA and the Beijing Daxing International Airport in CEA check-in areas and at the exit of the CEA VIP lounge, where passengers can find clear information about their flights, boarding gates, weather at their destination, as well as the routes and time required to get to their boarding gates.

Thanks to its application of cutting-edge technologies such as 5G and augmented reality in the civil aviation industry, CEA has become a pioneer of the "smart trip."
