With the purpose of convenience and safety, Emirates Airline introduces new technology – an integrated biometric path which will enable travelers to get through the airport faster and without standing in any queues.
It was said that the airline has installed the latest biometric technology with a mix of facial and iris recognition. This technology will allow travelers to pass check-in for their flights, complete immigration formalities, enter the Emirates Lounge, and board flights.
As part of Emirates’ continuous improvement and innovation, this initiative will provide a seamless journey reducing human interaction and putting emphasis on the health and safety of travelers.
The biometric system is installed on touchpoints for passengers traveling from Dubai and transit passengers at select First, Business and Economy Class check-in desks in Terminal 3 at DXB. Also, it is available at immigration gates including a “Smart Tunnel”, Emirates’ premium lounge entrance at concourse B and select boarding gates.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
