With Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (also known as Aruba Airport) having seen the benefits of biometric Automated Border Control eGates, its managers have now expanded the solution. Aruba Airport has now seen even more eGates at both its Arrivals and Departures areas as of this past December.
The airport’s fully automated Happy Flow pilot project was first implemented almost a year ago, and has since processed over 130,000 passengers from 33 countries using a sophisticated technological arsenal including biometric authentication. Developed by Vision-Box, the solution was recognized with the Radiant Pioneer Award last month, and has since been deployed at the Viracopos International Airport in Brazil, where is helped to reduce passenger processing time from minutes to seconds. Given its effectiveness in providing secure and fast passenger authentication, the solution was recognized with the Radiant Pioneer Award at the inaugural Radiant eID Awards last month.
Having introduced ABC eGates for US departures in December, Aruba Airport is now looking to deploy more of these eGates to further improve efficiency, particularly during its busiest season for tourism. Along with a software platform allowing for eGate management via smartphone and digital Embarkation and Disembarkation cards, Aruba Airport appears to be aiming for a high level of technological innovation in passenger processing, and Vision-Box’s technology is proving to be instrumental in this aim.
