Rapid scanning of passports will mean shorter border control queues for travelers at Africa’s second busiest airport

Gemalto, a digital security, is supplying Cairo International Airport, the second busiest airport in Africa, with automated document readers that will enable faster border crossings for millions of travellers, whilst ensuring rigorous security checking of passports and other identity credentials.

Cairo International Airport currently welcomes 15 million passengers every year. With global air travel continuing to grow, authorities are under intense pressure to reduce queues at border control and strengthen protection against threats such as illegal immigration.

“Cairo International Airport is Egypt’s most important gateway for business visitors, tourists and citizens returning home,” Magdy Ishak, Cairo Airport Co Chairman.

“Investment in Gemalto’s highly efficient document readers demonstrates our commitment to both enhancing the traveler experience and protecting Egypt against ID fraud.”

 
“Border control is an important first impression that a country makes on its overseas visitors,” said Mohamad Eit, Gemalto Regional Manager for Identity Management System in Middle East.
 
“The automated document readers will put Cairo International airport at the leading edge of fast, accurate authentication of travel documents, helping authorities strike the right balance between a warm welcome for legitimate passengers and water-tight defence against security threats.”
