Sharjah introduces new operational systems

Sharjah Airport Authority has begun implementing a series of new systems to improve operational efficiency and ensure the smooth flow of passengers. 

The passenger flow and queue management system covers infrastructure, technology and procedures that include the installation of sensors, linking them with the various operational systems of the airport and airlines. The system will help manage the airport’s resources, increasing its capacity and improving passenger satisfaction.

In addition to enhancing efficiency in the check-in, security and passport areas, the system provides the opportunity for real-time monitoring, with more than 112 sensors installed in the passenger areas.

The automated boarding pass verification system aims to enhance security levels and speed up the check-in of passengers thanks to the automated verification of all types of boarding passes – including printouts or digital versions on mobile phones – through a device that reads the pass and matches them with the existing data.  

The application of the two systems is part of a series of innovative solutions implemented by Sharjah Airport Authority, including smart gates and advanced infrastructure, with the overall aim of providing an integrated smart environment.
