Ecuador Introduces Airport Tech to Reduce Arrival Processing Times

Ecuador has installed new devices that vastly reduce the processing times for arrivals at Jose Joaquin de Olmedo and Quito International airports.

Marco Andino, director general of the National Customs Service of Ecuador (Senae), said that the new devices will reduce the time of tourist entry by 80% — what previously took up to 90 minutes now takes just 20 minutes.

By being connected to national and international security agencies, the devices are able to scan tourist passports and immediately establish the level of security that should be considered in the review of luggage.

Enrique Ponce, Minister of Tourism, said that the initiative will eradicate congestion in the ​​international arrivals area “which translates into a much more pleasant experience in the country.”
