Sharjah: Travelers can use their face as passport at airport this year

Travelers will be able to use their face as their passport when Sharjah Airport rolls out its facial recognition technology this year.

The biometric technology allowing passengers to use facial recognition is reportedly in its final phase for integration with immigration and airline systems.

“We expect to roll out face recognition in the fourth quarter of 2023,” said Sheikh Faisal bin Saoud Al Qassimi, director of Sharjah Airport Authority.

Last year, Sharjah Airport welcomed more than 13 million passengers, with passenger traffic growth at 84.73 percent since pandemic levels. ICA/Expat Media
