Tianhe International Airport has launched a new protocol for passing the security check and boarding the plane, all done through QR codes. This has saved time by eliminating the need to wait in lines to print boarding passes since June 26. By showing ID cards and QR codes produced after purchasing their tickets, passengers can smoothly pass the security check and board their planes.

Currently, this convenience can only be enjoyed by passengers taking domestic flights departing from Wuhan with no checked luggage. Special passengers, such as infants, children and disabled passengers with special care requirements during the flight cannot claim the electronic boarding passes in advance. They will still need to check in at the airport counter in person.
