E-gate deployments increase in Middle East

08 February 2018

Airports in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) intend to accelerate passenger flow in 2018 with deployment of additional automated e-gates, Jane’s has learned.

A total of 20 e-gates will be installed at Hamad International Airport to operate alongside 19 previously installed e-gates for arrivals and 21 for departures. Airport officials said 2.46 million passengers used these gates in 2017, compared with 1.41 million in 2016.

The expansion announcement came after the Qatar Ministry of Interior advised passengers “to make use of e-gate facility at Hamad … for quick completion of immigration process while entering or exiting the country”.
