TK Elevator has supplied Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport in China with more than 100 customised elevators.

The new elevators feature gesture and voice recognition functions, thereby eliminating the need for any passenger contact with surfaces. Users will be able to simply call and operate the elevator through hand gestures and voice command.

“Product innovation in urban transport systems is vital to the economic development of countries and destinations during challenging times such as the pandemic. New ideas are essential to raising transportation hubs to new levels of efficiency,” said Jürgen Böhler, CEO of TK Elevator Asia Pacific. “As a mobility partner, TK Elevator prides itself on understanding and quickly responding to the needs of customers and passengers alike. Our customised elevator operating solutions for the airport in Chongqing further underline this strength.”

TK Elevator’s escalators, moving walkways and elevators can be found in international and domestic airports throughout China, including Beijing, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Inner Mongolia. The 100+ strong fleet of elevators supplied to the new T3B terminal at Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport joins more than 300 elevator units previously installed by TK Elevator in the West China hub.
