At airports gates generally have the same “old fashioned” design. In order to speed up the boarding process new boarding strategies have to be developed and technology may be used to ease identification and allow self-boarding of passengers. This research project concerns the analysis of boarding processes, the design of new boarding processes and an analysis of the impact of the application of new technologies on the efficiency and the security of the boarding process.
