Travelers arriving at Pudong International Airport can now get to local quarantine hotels faster thanks to a host of new smart technologies that support COVID-19 prevention and control.

On average, it takes four hours for an overseas traveler to be transported to a closed-loop quarantine hotel after landing at Pudong airport, compared to 10 hours previously, an official with the Shanghai Airport Authority said on Thursday.

Quarantine staff can check passengers' information by scanning an integrated QR code on their smartphones, streamlining the transport process, said Zheng Yuefeng, deputy general manager of the airport authority's technology center.

Passengers' information is shared with Shanghai's 16 districts and neighboring Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces in real time, Zheng told the 10th International Smart Airport Development Forum.

Another smart management system monitors updated nucleic acid testing and vaccination conditions of the 120,000-plus airport employees.
