Automatic boarding pass validation system installed at Abu Dhabi International

Abu Dhabi International Airport in the UAE has become the first airport in the region to introduce an automated traveler document authentication system (TDAS) to help expedite the passenger security process.

The Airport iValidate technology, from air transport IT and communication solutions provider SITA, has been fitted in Terminals 1 and 3 and automatically verifies mobile, home-printed and original boarding passes prior to entering passport control. The new system has been introduced across four security lanes, and utilizes automatic gates activated by both handheld and static boarding pass scanners.

Ahmad Al Haddabi, chief operations officer, Abu Dhabi Airports, the airport operator, said, “Abu Dhabi Airports is committed to offering a world class travel experience, so it is vital that we use the very best and most innovative technology available. We are confident that with this new system in place, the speed at which passengers move through the airport will increase, thus improving overall operational efficiency.

“We are working on a number of initiatives in and around the airport, which will make travelers’ journeys even easier. All of this is part of Abu Dhabi Airports’ ongoing Capacity Enhancement Program to manage the growth in passenger numbers ahead of the opening of the Midfield Terminal Building.”
