October 8, 2019
Your check-in through Dubai Airport is about to get a whole lot easier!
According to Gulf News, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) has confirmed that the Biometric Passenger Journey system will launch at DXB soon! That means that Dubai residents will be able to travel through DXB without having to show any paper document! The paperless experience will use biometrics like facial recognition and thumb prints to speed up the process, allowing for a passport and boarding-pass free experience.
Major General Mohammad Al Merri, General Director of GDRFA, said “It is a seamless airport journey in Dubai as passengers will no longer need to show their passports or IDs. Traveller can walk through the terminal to the airplane just by showing his or her face.”
The new system, ‘Biometric Passenger Journey’ was launched in partnership with Emirates Airline and employs an innovative form of technology that uses a hybrid of facial and iris recognition! From immigration to entering the Emirates lounge to boarding flights, the new technology enables a truly seamless travel experience.
