October 2012 - Fast-tracked Passengers Breeze through Dubai International Airport Smart e-gate - IrisGuard

Airport congestion and long passenger queues, waiting for Entry/Exit clearance, are everyday frustrating experiences for international travellers. Smart e-gate with IrisGuard's robust and reliable technology plays an integral part in the process.


Dubai International Airport has taken radical steps to improve passenger experience at its terminals.The new Smart e-Gate System, installed at Terminal 3 in Dubai International Airport's passport control entry and exit points (phase one), is carefully designed to achieve that goal. Dubai International Airport (DXB) is ranked the fourth busiest airport in the world in terms of international passengers, according to Airports Council International (ACI). The airport serves more than 150 airlines, flying to over 220 destinations, across six continents. The current combined throughput of the airport's three terminals is 60 million passengers which will increase to 75 million passengers per year when the A380-dedicated "Concourse 3" opens at the end of this year. Last year Dubai Airport combined three passenger terminals, handling 50 million passengers, in which 30 million were entry/exit transactions.
