Synopsis
 

Smart card and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can touch on almost every aspect of people's lives. A simple swipe of a smart card enables travellers to pay for transport, including the express train to and from the airport. At Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), RFID tags are attached to luggage at check-in counters. The RFID luggage handling system accurately and efficiently sorts tens of thousands of incoming and outgoing bags every day, and ensures speedy and accurate service for travelers using one of the world's most modern and efficient airports. 

 

The convenience and speed of travel in Hong Kong has also benefited from the introduction of Hong Kong's Smart Identity (ID) Card and the Automated Passenger Clearance and Automated Vehicle Clearance Systems, or "e-Channels", at immigration control points.  With such an efficient system, travellers no longer need to wait in long lines to pass through checkpoints. Travel is once again hassle free.
