The first stage of the biometric service initiative has been started at Abu Dhabi airport. As per the policies of the biometric service, the passengers will now use their faces instead of their passport to get a boarding pass.

The NEXT50 company which is based in Abu Dhabi will introduce AI solutions along with their partners SITA and IDEMIA on immigration e-gates, boarding gates, and baggage touchpoints. This new technology will improve the traveling journey of passengers and make Midfield Terminal Building as first global airport to have biometric services.

Ibrahim Al Mannaee, CEO of NEXT50 highlighted the importance of the biometric project.

“Once the project is fully comprehended, Abu Dhabi will be the only airport in the region to have biometric resolutions applied across all customer touchpoints, contributing to Abu Dhabi Airport’s vision of becoming the operator of a technology-based airport in the world, giving all-in-one journey to its passengers. We are proud to be partnered with IDEMIA and SITA. We are also offering the expertise in data sciences and artificial intelligence to make this initiative a reality.” He said.

When the project is fully delivered, the passengers will be getting a simplified, hassle-free, and contactless traveling experience at the airport. This initiative will also reduce the queue and waiting time of passengers.

All the systems at the airport will have hi-technology biometric cameras through which the verification process will become smooth. This will also include passport control, baggage drop, business class lounge, and boarding gates.

Executive Director IDEMIA, Osama Al Makharmeh said on the biometric project:

“This partnership connects contactless biometric technology that provides the passengers an unparalleled airport experience without any harm on security. This will constantly help us in building passenger trust and benefit for smoother and more secure future travel.”
