Dubai Air­ports pushes new tech

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

SMART­PHONE GATES, bio­met­ric fa­cial tech­nol­ogy and au­to­mated bor­der con­trols are among the key new mea­sures be­ing in­tro­duced at DXB. Emirates says the bio­met­ric mea­sures and au­to­mated gates are now un­der­way and aim to be fully com­pleted within the next 12-18 months. The fa­cial recog­ni­tion so­lu­tion will in­te­grate with the UAE Wal­let en­abling pas­sen­gers to pass through de­par­tures and re­ceive au­to­mated ac­cess to first and busi­ness class lounges. The One Gate smart gates at T3 de­par­tures are de­signed to “sup­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing e-gates”, as are smart­phone gates, which also works with the UAE wal­let. Pas­sen­gers will scan a bar­code gen­er­ated by the app as you pass through and pro­vide a fin­ger­print.
