‘Airport Sees More than 1 Million Passengers Pass Through’

by Dubaiforum

Zayed International Airport in Abu Dhabi has reached a significant milestone in air travel technology by successfully processing over one million passengers through its new terminal since its inauguration in November 2023. This achievement highlights the airport’s dedication to enhancing travel efficiency and security through cutting-edge biometric technology.

IDEMIA, a key player in airport innovation in the UAE since 2011, has been instrumental in deploying a comprehensive border management solution at Abu Dhabi Airport. This solution, featuring the world’s first multi-biometric entry/exit system, has not only strengthened border security but has also improved the overall passenger experience and throughput. The success of this project has led to its expansion to the country’s other international airports.

A standout feature of this collaboration is the Single Token Journey (STJ) solution, which utilizes advanced facial recognition technology to simplify the passenger experience. By assigning a unique digital identifier to each traveler, the STJ solution eliminates the need for multiple documents, allowing passengers to move from curb to gate in just 12 minutes, including the border clearance step.

Elena Sorlini, MD, and CEO of Zayed International Airport, emphasized the airport’s commitment to enhancing travel experiences through innovation and technology. She highlighted that once fully implemented, Abu Dhabi will be the world’s first airport with biometrics integrated at every stage, ensuring a seamless, safe, and secure journey for travelers.

Osama Al Makhamreh, Vice President, Sales – Middle East & Africa at IDEMIA Public Security, commended the impact of their biometric solutions at Zayed International Airport’s new terminal. He expressed excitement about setting a new global standard for passenger facilitation with the scalability, security, and efficiency of the STJ solution.

The success of the STJ solution at Zayed International Airport not only enhances security but also transforms the overall passenger experience. This initiative underscores the airport’s commitment to adopting cutting-edge technologies to streamline the travel process, solidifying the UAE’s position as a hub for technological advancement and superior passenger facilitation.

This innovative approach has the potential to revolutionize air travel not only in the Middle East but on a global scale. Visit www.idemia.com for more information on this groundbreaking technology.
