(NAPSI)—A new record for air travel was set in 2018, with almost 1
billion people taking to the nation’s skies.
Have you ever wondered when technology will improve flying? Well, the future
of airports has landed, and you can expect flying to get better. The first
curb-to-gate biometric experience in the U.S. just launched at a major
international airport terminal to a positive customer response, potentially
changing the future of travel. Flyers can now opt in to a facial recognition
system to check baggage, pass security and board the plane without fumbling
for ID. And U.S. Customs and Border Protection has deployed facial
recognition at 16 international airports to speed passengers through
immigration, track visas and keep the nation safe from terrorists.
This technology is made by NEC Corporation, the international leader in
facial recognition and biometric technology, and you can expect to start
seeing it in numerous airports.
“Facial recognition is transforming the flying experience,”
said Raffie Beroukhim, NEC’s Senior Vice President for Advanced
Recognition Systems. “Now, passengers can seamlessly move through an
airport without ID, making flying faster and more convenient.”
Experts expect numerous airlines to adopt facial recognition because they
have a long history of adopting technology that makes flying more convenient.
Check-in kiosks, mobile boarding passes and in-flight Wi-Fi are all examples
of airlines embracing new tech. In 2007, Continental Airlines introduced
mobile boarding passes and virtually all carriers followed suit. In 2017,
more than 1.5 billion mobile boarding passes were issued, allowing passengers
to bypass long check-in lines.
The benefits of NEC’s facial recognition technology are twofold:
improving the traveler’s experience coupled with operational and cost
benefits for the airlines.
