Sixty-three percent of airports and 43 per cent of airlines plan to invest in biometric ID management solutions in the next three years, according to a new report published by SITA, Biometrics for Better Travel: An ID Management Revolution.
With passenger numbers rising, the use of biometrics to check passenger’s identity is expected to become more commonplace worldwide as a way to power faster and more secure self-service processes at airports.
Airlines are required to check passengers. With passenger numbers set to double by 2036, airlines and airports need to be able to move passengers through these checks as securely and quickly as possible. Efficient identity management is essential for better security while at the same time improving the passenger experience. Biometrics is the technology that can deliver this.
