New automated border control machines have been installed at Luxembourg’s Findel airport.
Minister of the economy Étienne Schneider and minister for sustainable development and infrastructure François Bausch were on hand to inaugurate the new e-gates at the airport on 26 July.
The aim of the new installation is to make passenger movement more fluid and provide travellers with better service, while also maintaining border security, said Schneider. LuxAirport has invested €2.35 million in the modern technology, with a further €1.3 million financed by the state.
The e-gates can be used by passengers in possession of passports issued by a member state of the EU, a country in the EAA or Switzerland. The barriers have been installed for passengers flying to or arriving from countries outside the Schengen zone.
