The contactless airport experience is now open to passengers travelling from and through Dubai.
The integrated biometric path will give passengers a seamless travel journey from specific check-in to boarding gates, improving customer flow through the airport with less document checks and less queuing.
Utilising the latest biometric technology – a mix of facial and iris recognition, Emirates passengers can now check in for their flight, complete immigration formalities, enter the Emirates Lounge and board their flights, simply by strolling through the airport.
The various touchpoints in the Biometric path allow for a hygienic contactless travel journey, reducing human interaction and putting emphasis on health and safety.
The biometric touchpoints are currently installed at select first, business and economy class check-in desks in Terminal 3 at Dubai International.
Areas where biometric equipment are installed will be clearly marked and additional units will be installed at each touchpoint in the future.Emirates is also the first airline outside America to receive approval for biometric boarding from the United States Customs Border Protection (CBP)
