As technology advances at an unprecedented rate, it’s no surprise that the airline industry is also jumping on the bandwagon. Emirates, one of the leading airline companies, has recently introduced biometric self-boarding gates at Dubai airport.
The onboarding process is very lengthy and trying for passengers. The system utilizes facial recognition technology to provide passengers with a smooth and hassle-free check-in process. Emirates is setting a new standard in the airline industry, paving the way for other airlines to follow suit and provide passengers with an enhanced travel experience.
The evolution of biometric technology has led one of the leading airline companies to utilize its benefits. Onboarding is often a very lengthy and tiring process for travelers. As everything is evolving as per human convenience, the company believes this lengthy process should be smooth and easy.
Furthermore, the security factors can not be compromised to speed up the process. Introducing a biometric self-boarding system is the ideal step to improve the system, as it will ensure a fast process and check in all the security factors.
How Does the Biometric Self-Boarding System Work?
The biometric self-boarding gates introduced by Emirates utilize cutting-edge facial recognition technology to provide passengers with a seamless and secure boarding experience. Upon arrival at the gate, passengers need to look at the camera, and the system will match their facial features with the information on their boarding pass. The process is quick and efficient, taking only a few seconds to complete.
The system, Sara, is also AI-enabled, which means it can assist passengers with additional services such as airport navigation, booking deals, and accepting baggage. In the future, the system is expected to be upgraded to include AI, allowing it to connect with provide information on airport directions, booking hotels, and accepting baggage.
By using biometric technology, Emirates is improving the efficiency and security of the boarding process and paving the way for a more seamless travel experience for passengers.
How will it change the air travel industry?
Implementing the biometric self-boarding system, Sara is a revolutionary move in the air travel industry. With the integration of AI technology and biometric authentication, the system is set to change the face of air travel as we know it. The system streamlines check-in and will connect to immigration services in the future to save passengers time.
Integrating biometric technology will ensure that all the legit information is linked with the biometric data, making it impossible for anyone without proper documents to enter the country. It will result in a much safer process and higher reliability on border security for authorities. The elimination of the additional time wasted in immigration will also make the whole process of air travel smoother and more convenient for passengers.
Implementing the system will also significantly reduce business operational costs, making it beneficial. With the use of AI and other modern technology set to more than triple in the next two years, the airline industry is set to be revolutionized. Emirates has already implemented biometric registration and self-check-in, reducing the number of check-in counters and staff required to process flights at the boarding area. With the continued implementation of such advanced technology, air travel will become a more efficient, safe, and convenient experience for all.
