The system is called Emirates Smart Wallet and aims to further streamline travel movement across Dubai International Airport, UAE news agency WAM reported.
The scheme was launched Wednesday at the airport’s departure terminal and is at its first phase.
The smart phone contains traveler’s personal data, Emirates ID and passport information as well as the e-gate card data.
The ultimate goal is to cut back travel clearing procedures to the minimum, WAM reports.
Authorities are looking to make Dubai airport the smartest in the world with “focus on innovative and practical solutions that will be based on the “6s” – Smart, Speed, Saving, Service, Safety, Security.”
