Self-service kiosks to speed customs at Midway

CHICAGO — Chicago aviation officials say a system to help travelers move through customs more quickly is coming to Chicago's Midway International Airport.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said Tuesday that Midway should get the Automated Passport Control program in the first three months of next year. Chicago's O'Hare International Airport was the first airport in the country to get the technology this summer. Aviation officials say the system has reduced peak wait times at O'Hare by 16 minutes.

Passengers can enter information at a self-service kiosk.

When Midway is up and running it will make Chicago the first city in the country to have the technology at two airports.
