Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is on track to become a fully contactless destination through the adoption of cutting-edge FacePass technology.

It’s part of a digital transformation strategy master minded by the destination’s creator, Miral, and will be rolled out in phases across the island.

FacePass will streamline guest experiences using facial recognition, with Yas Theme Parks leading the way as the first theme parks regionally to adopt the technology.

It is facilitated by the Yas Island mobile app and linked to the island’s parks and attractions’ ticketing systems and turnstiles, allowing guests and Annual Pass holders contactless access at points of entry and contactless payment via facial recognition across select retail and dining outlets.

The long-term digital transformation for Yas Island will see FacePass technology integrated into all Yas Island assets, from access points for residential and communal areas to retail and F&B destinations.
