With automation, queuing time at airport checkpoints can be reduced by 50%

Optimised queuing times relieve passenger stress, it can also financially beneficial to airports and airline operators. According to ACI World’s Airport Economics Report, non-aeronautical related activities accounted for almost 40% of airport revenue in 2018.
