In yet another measure aimed at making the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport traveller-friendly, the airport management has introduced an advanced e-gate system to ensure that passengers get to enter the airport Security Hold Area (SHA) without any hassle.
After checking in, passengers can now enter the security holding area by scanning their boarding passes at the e-gates. Six e-gates with QR code scanners have been installed in the pre-security holding area of the airport’s domestic and international terminals for the purpose.
The e-gates form part of the airport authority's efforts to develop a technologically advanced ecosystem that will offer a seamless, consistent and paperless service experience. Besides being seamless, it would speed up the check-in process and avoid long queues during peak hours.
E-gates would also help airlines to locate passengers within the terminal easily, thereby by helping to improve airport security.
