Gemalto, a provider of digital security, and IER, a provider of terminals and integrated solutions for air and rail travel networks, have teamed to create "Fly to Gate," an end-to-end, self-service airport experience for travelers, according to a press release.
A Fly to Gate departure solution encompasses mobile or fully automated check-in stations, bag drop points, border control, security and boarding gates.
Fly to Gate supports multimodal biometric checking, including facial recognition, robust document verification and integration with immigration systems, supporting standards of security and operational efficiency for airports and airlines.
The solution offers flexibility to meet individual requirements, as well as the potential to make virtually all traveler handling processes automatic. By putting the passenger in control of their airport experience, the Gemalto/IER approach reduces queuing, as well as the stress and strain associated with air travel.
