By the end of summer 2018, it is planned that Dubai airports will have integrated a new series of security checkpoints that take the form of facial recognition tunnels. It is estimated that 124 million travelers will pass through Dubai airports by 2020 and this new system is set to modernize the current security checkpoints in place.

The new tunnels that travelers will pass through will be covered in cameras to scan a passenger's face and retinas. Advertisements inside the tunnel will be used to capture a traveler's attention as they pass, making it possible for the hidden cameras to create a complete picture of one's face. After passing through the tunnel, a passenger will either be directed to move on or follow an additional security check based on a display system.
