Airport International Group announced that, in February 2022, Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) – in collaboration with Royal Jordanian Airlines (RJ) and travel technology company Amadeus – will begin trial testing Amadeus Biometric Solutions on select RJ flights to Istanbul.
The advanced biometric technology was built for airports by airport specialists and involves a facial recognition service installed on select QAIA self-check-in kiosks and at boarding gates.
By testing the Amadeus technology, both QAIA and RJ aim to improve the passenger experience, raise passenger handling capacity, boost automation, improve overall airport operations and, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, offer passengers partaking in this trial test peace of mind as they enjoy a touch-free airport journey.
“With airports worldwide shifting towards such transformational technologies, we welcome the initiative of Amadeus to pilot biometric solutions on select Royal Jordanian Airlines flights, at QAIA,” commented Airport International Group CEO, Nicolas Claude.
“As the operator of QAIA, we are keen to assess the conditions for future deployment of such technologies at Jordan’s prime gateway to the world and remain up to speed on future travel requirements, so we can present to passengers a faster and more streamlined contactless journey”.
