With air passenger volumes returning to pre-pandemic levels, airports and airlines need to be ready to speed travelers through facilities without compromising security – and that’s easier said than done. Thankfully, biometric and identify verification technologies are available now, ready to solve the biggest challenges facing the aviation industry in 2023.
HID has published a series of air travel resources to illustrate exactly how technologies like facial recognition, AI, and ID scanners – when deployed in a modular fashion – can address air travel’s biggest obstacles right away.
eBook: Passenger Identity Verification: Opportunities and Challenges for Airlines and Airport Operations
HID’s air travel industry eBook “Passenger Identity Verification: Opportunities and Challenges for Airlines and Airport Operations” outlines all the most pressing obstacles faced by aviation stakeholders today, and demonstrates how the right identity solution deployed at the right passenger touchpoint can elevate passenger journeys, fight identity crime, and provide rapid ROI. Check out this eBook to learn:
- Which technologies can offer high levels of accuracy in all airport environments, eliminate demographic bias in biometric matching, and defend against the fake ID influx.
- How biometrics and identity verification can be deployed ethically, enhancing the privacy of passengers.
- Why a modular approach to deploying identity technologies is the best avenue for solving the top three resources challenges.
Vito Fabbrizio, Managing Director of HID’s Biometric Business Unit, discusses the crucial importance of biometric accuracy in dynamic high-security environments like airports. As unique facilities with often severe lighting challenges for face-based biometric systems, airports need to have fast and accurate technology that’s versatile in the field.
In addition to accurate image capture and matching, all identity systems should be equitable. This blog provides an update on biometric bias in face recognition systems, and offers a solution that will ensure all travelers in an airport are being treated with equal respect when it comes to their precious identity data.
Biometrics are only part of the identity equation – ID documents are also a crucial element of safe and secure air travel. But we are faced with a fake ID crisis. Read this blog to learn how fake IDs are compromising national security, and how state-of-the-art document readers at border control touchpoints can take them out of circulation before they do any more damage.
Implementing biometric and identity technologies in air travel is enormously complex, and that complexity can lead to long implementation times that cost stakeholders millions. This final blog in HID’s series lays out an elegant solution to this operational challenge that can immediately improve a facility’s identity system while setting airports and airlines up for long-term gains.
