Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, announced that it purchased 74 Automated Passport Control kiosks from Vancouver Airport Authority.
APC kiosks reduce the U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspection process time by 89% and cut passenger wait times in half.
Travelers can use the kiosks to scan their U.S. or Canadian passports and answer customs declaration questions before proceeding to a customs officer. Those who choose not to use the kiosks must fill out a declaration card and wait to give it directly to a customs officer.
Atlanta is the seventh international airport to use the kiosks, following Chicago Midway, Chicago O’Hare, Montréal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau, JFK, Seattle-Tacoma, and Vancouver International Airport.
