The railway service provider is also assisting elderly passengers with online services, such as buying tickets. When they use a registered mobile phone number to dial the railway information hotline, their calls will be given priority.

Contact-free services have also been expanded on trains and at railway stations to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. More vending machines have been set up at railway stations, and passengers are being encouraged to use online food ordering services on trains.

Beijing Daxing International Airport has established a 24-hour nucleic acid test site. Travelers can be tested without having to make an appointment, and their results will be available in two to four hours.

According to the latest epidemic control protocols, all travelers entering Beijing after Jan 22 are required to have a nucleic acid test no later than 72 hours after their arrival.

Beijing Capital International Airport has also launched a version of its mobile phone app that is tailored for elderly travelers. It includes access to services such as wheelchair leasing and free shuttle services inside the airport.
