Moroccan Airports Authority partners with National Aviation Services to bring innovation to Airports in Marrakech

The Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA) partnered with National Aviation Services (NAS), to launch the first electronic gates (E-gates) at the Pearl Lounge in the Marrakech Menara Airport departures area.

With this new state-of-the-art, self-service check in, guests visiting the Pearl Lounge can access the lounge faster without checking in at the reception desk or waiting in a queue. The passengers simply scans their printed or online boarding pass at the gate and enter the lounge.

The E-gate effectively captures all the boarding pass data, checks eligibility, enters the transaction into a database for billing and reporting, and opens the gate for eligible passengers – all in less than 2 seconds. The E-gate also supports lounge membership cards and vouchers.

The same technology will soon be adopted at other Pearl Lounges in Morocco as well as across other lounges in the NAS network.

NAS has been exclusively managing the refurbishment and operations of 16 lounges across nine airports in Morocco, following a ten-year concession awarded by the Moroccan Airports Authority (ONDA).
