Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 8, 2018:  Major General Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, Director General, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs – Dubai (GDRFA-D), said that by 2030, the smart gates at Dubai airports will replace passport officials’ platforms with a view to reducing the human involvement factor in application of Dubai’s 10X initiative.

Delivering the welcome address at the Airport Security Middle East conference on the second day of the 18th edition of Airports Show, Al Marri said: “We have created smart gates projects in an exclusive and modern way, and these amount now to about 122 smart gates.

We have created a number of smart projects in Dubai international airports, the latest of which is “Next-Generation Departure” project, which will enable passengers complete their travel procedures in the least time possible.”

Delivering the opening keynote address, Col. Hamooda Belsuwaida Alameri, Assistant Director General Operations at General Department of Airport Security, Dubai Police said: “Dubai police has plans to coordinate its human resources and capabilities to ensure security at airports.

The airport security challenges are land side security, cyber security and security check points.

Airports, the police and the security agencies need to collaborate and exchange information as well as to do risk assessments to ensure security on all fronts.'

Technologies have been put into strategies and plans to have security checkpoints of the future to make Dubai airports safe and secure for all our clients, he added.

Al Marri added that the Directorate is looking to realise the vision to have the UAE ranked amongst the best countries in the world in terms of safety and security by ensuring the implementation of nationality and residency related laws to bring security and economic benefit to the country and contribute to the protection of its ports.

We are constantly evolving with the advent of modern technology and artificial intelligence tools.

This may be one of the factors facing some sectors, requiring the deployment of innovative and intelligent solutions by government entities and contribution to promoting Dubai's global leadership.

Dubai  has set up its airports with a view to have them act as smart stations in their capacity as one of the most vital ports for the UAE, on the one hand, and the gateway to all people of the world, on the other.

“This comes in line with the vision and directions of our wise leadership to ensure the happiness of all travellers and provide all necessary facilities and services bound to make their travel through Dubai a memorable experience.

This has, in effect, enabled Dubai to occupy top ranking positions amongst the best tourist destinations worldwide and largest airports in the world, not to mention that Dubai has ranked first in terms of passenger numbers, as total passengers through Dubai airports reached 88 million last year.”
