Baiyun airport in south China’s Guangzhou city has just opened special male only security checkpoints.
China’s third busiest airport opened three female only security checkpoints last month.
Now it says it’s time for the gentlemen to enjoy some privileges.
Part of the reason for opening the male-only channel is to respect the customs of some foreigners and people from various ethnic groups.
It is a move by the airport to improve its services and become more passenger-friendly.
According to airport regulations, female passengers should only be checked by female security inspectors.
This means that each female inspector has to deal with more passengers than her male colleagues as she can check male and female passengers. But the male inspectors only inspect males.
As well as male and female security checkpoints, the Baiyun airport has late-comer checkpoints, first-class cabin checkpoints and luggage-free checkpoints.
