A more digital airport will have less physical interaction

The more intense use of electronic systems in the routine of federal agencies that operate in Brazilian airports became part of the government’s strategy to help the sector overcome the crisis. The Ministry of Infrastructure is preparing the launch of two new platforms to reduce the average air cargo processing time by 80% and automate passenger screening through the facial recognition technology, so there is no physical interaction. The inefficiency in air cargo dispatch was felt by the government itself when it started to bring a large amount of hospital supplies from China to face the health crisis caused by the new coronavirus. According to a survey, releasing imported cargo at Guarulhos airport (SP) takes six days. The goal is to reduce it to a day and a half. The replacement of paper documents by digital protocols by the Brazilian Federal Revenue Agency, the Federal Police and health surveillance authorities should allow the processing of information about the landing load on the ground, with a minimum of three hours in advance, according to the Brazilian Secretary of Civil Aviation Ronei Glanzmann.​ – https://valor.globo.com/brasil/noticia/2020/07/24/aeroporto-mais-digital-tera-menos-interacao-fisica.ghtml
