Larnaca International Airport is upgrading its services
11 April 2017
Larnaca International Airport (LCA) in Cyprus is further upgrading its services with the expansion of its auto-electronic gates system. Seven electronic gates are now in operation in the departures area. They allow travellers carrying a printed boarding pass to proceed directly to security and then the retail area and departure gates beyond. The gates can serve up to 1,800 passengers/hr, which should reduce queuing times at all stages of departures. Hermes Airports, Larnaca’s operator, has also upgraded its Express Lane facility, which allows airlines to offer the queue-dodging service directly to customers with an automated procedure integrated into boarding passes. Aegean is the first airline to introduce the offer to its passengers. The auto-electronic gate system is also expected to expand to Cyprus’ Paphos International Airport.
