Dubai passengers can now complete immigration formalities by walking through tunnel


- Advertisment -

Dubai’s Emirates airline has recently introduced an integrated biometric path at the Dubai International Airports where passengers can check-in for their flights, complete immigration formalities, enter the lounge, and board their flights by walking through the passage. 

Offering a seamless travel journey, the latest biometric technology uses a mix of facial and iris recognition. It’s currently available for all Emirates passengers traveling from and through the emirate. 

It allows passengers to complete everything ‘contactless’ and reduce human interaction. 

“Now, it is more vital than before to make sure of technology and implement products and introduce processes that focus not only on fast-tracking customers but, more importantly, on health and safety during their travel journey. The contactless biometric path is the latest in a series of initiatives we have introduced to make sure that traveling on Emirates is a seamless journey,” Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ Chief of Operating Officer, told Gulf News. 

Currently, the biometric touchpoints are fixed at select First, Business, and Economy Class check-in desks in Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport, immigration gates including a ‘smart tunnel’, Emirates’ lounge entrance in concourse B, as well as select boarding gates.
