COVID-19 taught us that in order to progress we have to act faster. Keeping that in mind, Dubai Airports are setting up a laboratory to conduct PCR tests in which results can be out in just 3-4 hours.

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports said on Wednesday, May 19: “We are going to establish a lab on the premise close to Terminal 2 where PCR tests will be processed and the results should be available in 3-4 hours.” 

Dubai Airports CEO said if biometric vaccine passports are up and running across the world, then it can be a possible substitute of PCR test over time.

"We have already got the Covid-19 applications active, which show vaccination status of the people. If other countries are doing similar thing, then all we need is join it up. And through IATA, we will be able to join that."

He, however, stressed that airports or airlines will not be invading privacy of the passengers through digital vaccination passports.

"We don't need to know your health status. We just need to be informed by the authority that is monitoring your health back in your country that you're good to go."

Traveling is now easier with this new feature. "Covid-19 passports are now possible because technology has advanced. All that horrid bureaucratic experiences that passenger faced for years is now being changed with technological advances and that will make travel good, if not better," Griffiths added.
