Doha HIA to implement Smart Traveller System soon

The Hamad International Airport (HIA) has emerged as one of the most secure and safest airports in the world thanks to state-of-the-art technology and devices introduced in the airport, a senior official said yesterday.

HIA is gearing up to implement its ambitious smart traveller system that will allow passengers to complete all procedures electronically.

It helps them to pass through the inspection devices and complete all procedures such as weighing of bags and issuance of boarding pass.

Travellers can also board the plane independently, without the presence of security staffs.

Of the six million people who travelled through the Hamad International Airport (HIA) in the first quarter of this year, about 850,000 passengers used the e-gate service, which is now available for citizens and expatriates free of charge.

These devices, meant for individual inspection and luggage searches, are linked to cameras to detect any obstructions with passengers. The airport security personnel were also trained on how to use and benefit from them, he added.
