Marrakech Airport to Offer Travelers Fast-Track Service

Marrakech Airport to Offer Travelers Fast-Track Service

The Marrakech Menara Airport will offer passengers electronic gates (E-Gates), a fast track self-checking service, first of its kind in Africa, destined to improve the airport’s management.

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.
