Emirates Introduces Biometric Technology and Selfie Check-in


Emirates passengers departing from Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 can look forward to a smoother airport experience with the implementation of two new initiatives that will streamline the check-in and immigration checks at departure.

Involving biometric technology and new automated border control gates, the two projects will be launched immediately, with completion expected within the next 12 -18 months.

Using a facial recognition solution integrated with the UAE Wallet, travellers will be able to register and store their biometric data through multiple means including by taking a selfie on their mobile phones, as well as using biometric registration kiosks placed at check-in areas and Emirates Lounges.

They can then use this biometric data to go through immigration at T3 Departures and other touch-points throughout DXB airport, including automated access to Emirates’ First and Business Class lounges.

The smart immigration gates will be installed at T3 Departures, supplementing the existing e-gates, and manned immigration counters. The new smart gates offer an automated border control system that utilises travellers’ biometrics.

It will also enable travellers to forgo getting their passports and boarding passes manually checked by a security officer before they go through immigration, as these checks will be automatically integrated within the biometric validation as travellers pass through the new smart gates.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
