The Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) has
partnered with National Aviation Services (NAS) to launch e-gates
at the Pearl Lounge in the Marrakech Menara Airport departures
With this new state-of-the-art, self-service check in,
guests visiting the Pearl Lounge can access the lounge faster
without checking in at the reception desk or waiting in a queue.
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.
technology will soon be adopted at other Pearl Lounges in Morocco
as well as across other lounges in the NAS network.
Hassan El-Houry, Group CEO of NAS said “As the exclusive
lounge operator for the Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) in
Morocco, NAS is responsible for bringing world class facilities
and services to the local airports. Since kicking off operations
in the country, we have invested in infrastructure, resources and
training; provided operational expertise, state of the art
technology solutions and industry benchmarked services, to launch
and manage refurbished lounges across the country. The newly
introduced E-gates will help enhance our offerings in the country
and amplify our efforts to ensure that Moroccan airports supersede
recognized international airports around the world.”
