Detroit airport gets automated customs technology

New technology at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport aims to make the U.S. customs process a little easier for international travelers.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it will demonstrate the use of the airport’s 30 new Automated Passport Control kiosks Thursday. They’re designed to reduce passenger wait times by 25 to 40 percent by allowing passengers to enter information at a self-service kiosk rather than filling out a declaration card.

They’re located in a secure area of the customs inspection area.

Delta Air Lines and airport officials will also participate in the demonstration.
