Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii will begin a new screening procedure that streamlines customs and security processes for passengers.

The new system, entitled the Global Entry pilot programme, shortens passport processing lines for pre-approved passengers.

The system is expected to decrease the average waiting time for passengers by 70% and will be capable of processing nearly 75% of all passengers within five minutes.

The screening system allows members to insert a permanent resident card or passport into a document reader. They are then asked to provide digital fingerprints and answer customs declaration queries displayed on a touch screen.

Members must submit a transaction receipt to the US Customs and Border Protection offices prior to leaving the inspection area.

Honolulu Airport is one of 13 airports in the US that will be using the new screening system.
