It is known that with more than 10 million of passenger throughout, HAK installed 4 KABA twin-aisle self-boarding devices supporting 2D and 1D barcodes boarding passes. Passengers can board their flights by scanning their 2D or 1D barcodes on their boarding passes on the self-boarding devices, which would speed up boarding procedures and achieve quick access.
