Dubai Airports and the Dubai Police General Department of Airport Security are joining the Smart Security initiative, after signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the International Air Travel Transport Association (IATA) and Airports Council International (ACI).
Smart Security aims to bring specific and measurable improvements in security effectiveness, operational efficiency, and passenger experience at airport security checkpoints, through better use of technology, process innovation, and the use of risk-based security concepts.
The MOU will enable Dubai Airports, together with airlines, border control authorities, regulators, and technology providers, to benefit from the knowledge and lessons gained through trials and research activities at other participating airports.
