The Princeton Identity solution aims to identify DXB travellers within one to two seconds, reducing time spent in security lines and enhancing the overall travel experience.

The Emirates Airlines terminals are the largest terminals within one of the world's busiest passenger airports. Dubai experienced about 14.9mn international visitors in 2016, and is expected to surpass 20mn visitors by 2020. There are currently about 100 Access500e products in operation across DXB's Emirates Airlines terminals, with plans to deploy additional 40 to support the influx of new international tourists.

“Princeton Identity and the Dubai International Airport share a goal of simplifying and speeding access to keep people and business moving, and the Access500e deployment at the DXB marks a new standard in passenger security,” said Mark Clifton, CEO at Princeton Identity.

“Iris recognition is most reliable form of biometric identification, and the Access500e turns what used to be a slow process for travellers into a convenient, quick and more secure experience,” Clifton added.

The Iris biometric capture device has been designed for integration into a variety of application solutions. At DBX, it is integrated into a new Smart Gate, which captures biometric signatures, thus eliminating the need for visitors to check in with a customs agent, and saving time for passengers as well as airport staff.

“This helps ensure verification of all travellers entering and leaving the country, seamlessly and efficiently. Princeton Identity partnered with the tech company Emaratech in fostering the implementation of Access500e into the terminals at DBX,” said the company to the press.
