    As they brace themselves to take on the world competition by strongly emerging as the new global travel hubs, the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states are investing millions of dollars in airports technology and system upgrades to ensure seamless and safer passenger and freight movement.
    With Middle East airports expected to be handling nearly 400 million passengers per year by 2020, constant development and upgrades to the security system are needed to deliver a better travellers' experience, says the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

    Mohammed Ahli, Director General, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), said: "Safety of passengers/ freight and infrastructure security is not, and should not be, of a transit nature, but a constantly evolving requirement. The authorities face the challenges of adopting effective safety measures whilst limiting the inconvenience to the passengers. An airport is always judged by its security and service standards. It's crucial to adopt innovative technology, improve security and streamline efficiencies to offer a seamless passenger travel experience."
