“I think we are the first airline globally to introduce or plan to introduce a portable check-in robot,” said Emirates’ Chief Operating Officer Adel Al Redha
“The robot can complete the passenger’s check-in processes, including issuing a boarding pass, which will be sent to the travellers’ registered mobile number or e-mail,” Al Redha further conveyed.
By always innovating in the industry Dubai airport also introduced a host of biometric contactless pathways at Terminal 3 in Dubai Airport. With facial and iris recognition supporting all immigration facilities, passengers could have a seamless travel experience.
