Moscow Domodedovo Airport installs SITA’s self-service gates

Moscow Domodedovo Airport (DME) in Russia has installed SITA’s Airport Self-Service Gates for managing the surge in passengers seen during the recent FIFA World Cup 2018.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport (DME) in Russia has installed SITA’s Airport Self-Service Gates for managing the surge in passengers seen during the recent FIFA World Cup 2018.

The automated gates helped the airport to process more than 1.2 million visitors in just over a month around the championship.

Since the start of the year, a total of 3.3 million travellers have used the automated gates at Domodedovo Airport.

Domodedovo was the first airport in Russia to launch SITA’s passenger flow management solution, which is based on smart validation and automated gates for secure access control.

“SITA’s technology showed its effectiveness during the peaks of traffic when soccer fans from all over the world flew through Domodedovo.”

The gates allow passengers to pass through controls at the entrance or board the aircraft by simply scanning their mobile or paper boarding pass.

DME Integration CEO Gennady Zalutsky said: “SITA’s technology showed its effectiveness during the peaks of traffic when soccer fans from all over the world flew through Domodedovo for the matches.

“We are confident that this landmark project, which makes use of modern technologies, will raise the quality of passenger services at DME to a new level.”

Overall, a total of 150 automated gates will be deployed in Terminals 1 and 2 in the airport.

SITA Russia and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) vice-president Dmitry Krasnov said: “We have helped many countries manage major events by introducing technology that automates the flow of passenger through major airports. From the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles to the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and this year in Russia.

“While these events are often the catalysts for introducing new technology, we continue to see the benefit of these investments well after the final whistle has gone.”
