New self-boarding gates for Sounds Air travellers

3 Jul 2017

Wellington Airport has introduced the IER 710 SlimGate self-boarding gate for regional passengers on Sounds Air flights, as part of an ongoing programme to make getting from the kerb to cabin faster and easier.

At the new automated gate, passengers can simply scan their boarding pass to board the aircraft. Automated gates are becoming more common at airports around the world because they speed up passenger processing and accuracy, and they also appeal to today’s strong passenger preference for self-service technology.

The new self-service gate at Wellington Airport is part of an ongoing programme to improve efficiency. For fast, automated and reliable passenger processing, the IER 710 SlimGate combines high throughput with advanced security thanks to high density matrix of infra-red beams.

The IER 710 SlimGate can be optimized for a variety of airport configurations and used in multiple steps of the passenger journey, ranging from security checks, boarding, immigration and transfers, all within the highest levels of security.

New self-boarding gates for Air New Regional flights are scheduled for installation later in 2017.
