Trial operations at Abu Dhabi International Airport's Midfield terminal building have begun ahead of opening in November.
More than 6,000 volunteers took part in the airport's largest trial and test exercise to date.
All systems including check-in and baggage handling, security screening, boarding gates, immigration were stringently tested.
Volunteers assessed the speed and accuracy of check-in, including document and customs inspections.
They also tested boarding routines and assessed flight information procedures.
