HIA is known for its state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, which include a world-class duty-free shopping area, a luxurious spa, and a swimming pool. The airport also has its own Qatar Airways Museum, which houses a collection of artifacts and memorabilia from the airline's history.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INSTALLATION
The HIA stepped up security by implementing an access control system that uses badge readers, biometric fingerprint readers, and is integrated with their management system.
TBS developed a module to parse biometric fingerprint data in WSQ format, and also created a Swagger Interface to accommodate this integration.
TBS biometric fingerprint readers are installed on dual height pedestals at all HIA access control point gates to accurately identify individuals by their unique fingerprints.
The new system is integrated with their existing management
The new access control system from Nedap & TBS is the perfect solution for needs of Hamad International airport. The new system is integrated with their existing management system. As soon as a badge is printed by their management system all cardholder data is automatically pushed to the new Nedap/TBS solution. The new Swagger Interface makes it easy to accommodate this integration, and the module - also newly developed – to parse the biometric fingerprint data ensures that all data is accurately transferred.
