The Suvarnabhumi airport on Monday launched a campaign for air passengers to use its automatic check-in kiosks in a bid to reduce congestion during the New Year Festival.

automatic check in machinesSirote Duangratana, director of Suvarnabhumi airport of the Airports of Thailand Plc, said the campaign is intended for passengers to turn to use the airport’s “x-press check-in kiosks” to reduce the check-in time.

With the machine, each passenger requires only two to five minutes to complete the check-in and get a boarding pass, he said.

Mr Sirote said the airport has installed 16 automatic check-in machines at the departure lounge on the fourth floor.

The machines are being used by 14 airlines including Thai Airways International, Bangkok Airways, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and British Airways.

During the trial period, the machines will be in use until Feb 29, 2016.

The “x-press check-in kiosks” will be manned around the clock by the airport’s staff to advise passengers how to use them.
