An agreement has been sealed lately by the Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) with National Aviation Services (NAS) for the launching of this new high-tech solution, which will enable travelers’ access to the Pearl Lounge faster without checking in at the reception desk or waiting in a queue. The passengers simply scan their printed or online boarding pass at the gate and enter the lounge.
The E-gate effectively captures all the boarding pass data, checks eligibility, enters the transaction into a database for billing and reporting, and opens the gate for eligible passengers – all in less than 2 seconds. The E-gate also supports lounge membership cards and vouchers.
NAS has been exclusively managing the refurbishment and operations of 16 lounges across nine airports in Morocco, following a ten-year concession awarded by the ONDA.
NAS is currently present in 17 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa; providing ground handling services to seven of the world’s top airlines and managing 31 airport lounges.
