Larnaka International Airport, Republic of Cyprus | March 22, 2017– As part of an ongoing effort to upgrade its services, Hermes Airports announces the expansion of the auto-electronic gates system at Larnaka International Airport.

Overall, seven electronic gates are now in operation, all of them located in the departures area (check-in) serving departing passengers. It should be noted that the automatic-electronic entry gates system allows the traveling public, carrying a printed copy of the airline’s boarding pass, to proceed directly to the security check and then to the retail area and departure gates of the terminal.

The process of using this system is very simple and only requires the scanning of the boarding pass of each passenger. The system of automatic-electronic gates, can serve up to 1,800 passengers per hour, a fact which is expected to contribute significantly to the reduction of the total queuing time of the traveling public and the number of passengers that until recently had to be served at the Check-in points exclusively.
