Swedish airport operator Swedavia is introducing automated entry gates at the security checkpoints across the country. Automation and digitisation are high on the operator’s agenda, with the aim of reducing passenger wait times and optimising terminal space. Recently, Göteborg Landvetter Airport (GOT) had its first automated entry gate installed, with more set to follow shortly, and Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) has introduced automated entry gates in the main security checkpoint in Terminal 5. Gates will also be rolled out at other Swedavia airports throughout 2018. Swedavia has already installed automated check-in and bag-drop kiosks, and according to the operator, now has the most automated bag drops in the world. Passengers flying from Åre Östersund Airport (OSD) in northern Sweden can even drop off their skis in the automated bag drop. Automated check-in machines are also located at a number of hotels in Åre, which means that passengers can print bag tags and fasten them to their baggage before they even get to the airport, further enhancing the passenger experience. Elisabeth Axtelius, director of aviation business for Swedavia Airports, said: “Self-service solutions are something that our airlines and that we want to introduce in order to simplify travel for passengers and increase the efficiency of our airlines. The new services are in line with what our airlines and passengers want.”
