HCMC – The Cat Bi International Airport in Haiphong City has arranged a single line equipped with biometric authentication technology for travelers having chip-based citizen identity (ID) cards.

Passengers are required to go through a facial recognition system at the security checkpoint, where a set of cameras will be used to cross-check the information on their ID cards and boarding passes.

The screening system is managed via VeriPAX, a software program developed by the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV).

On average, each passenger check takes one minute.

The initiative is expected to improve the airport’s operational efficiency and better identify aviation breaches, such as fake ID cards, cross-border criminals and individuals banned from flying.

The system has tracked 758 travelers at the Cat Bi International Airport since early February.

The test is set to run through March and only applies to domestic flights.
