UAE airport all set to replace passport checks with facial recognition


Abu Dhabi International Airport’s facial recognition is reportedly being trialed where passengers need only to show their face for them to travel. 

The advanced biometric technology uses smart cameras to capture an image of the traveler’s face. The system will then confirm whether the traveler is cleared to travel and board his or her flight. 

The traveler won’t need to present any document, including his or her passport. 

Airport lounges may also be accessed using groundbreaking facial recognition technology. 

According to a local report, the facial recognition system is still in the first phase of testing at the US Customs and Border Protection facility for Etihad flights to the US. 

It is expected to be rolled out across all airlines in the coming months. 

“We are looking forward to leveraging this holistic biometric technology, the first of its kind in the UAE and the world, to further enhance our passenger journey. The project will commence at Abu Dhabi International Airport and then transferred to the new Midfield Terminal in the future as we continue to be committed to enhancing the airport services and experience,” Eng. Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said.
