Bangalore Airport To Launch ‘Facial Recognition’ Boarding System In 2019!

In a bid to transform passenger experience and make the airport futuristic, Bangalore Airport has said that it will implement ‘Facial Recognition’ facility to make the boarding process paperless.

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) and Lisbon-based digital and biometric solutions service provider, Vision-Box, have signed an agreement to launch paperless biometric self-boarding technology.

Below are a few key points about this technology:

  • The airport is set to become the first airport in India to have an end-to-end solution for paperless air travel.
  • BIAL expects that the technology will be implemented in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Jet Airways, Air Asia and SpiceJet will be the first carriers to use this technology for their passengers.
  • The goal of the programme is to simplify the journey by making it paperless from registration at the airport to boarding a flight.
  • The technology will identify passengers by their face as they move across the airport.
  • Passengers will not have to present their boarding passes, passports or other physical identity documents.

According to BIAL’s Managing Director & CEO, Mr. Hari Marar, ‘A passengers face will be their boarding pass’.

He also said that Vision-Box’s state-of-the-art biometric technology, combined with its passenger flow platform, will enable a seamless journey for passengers, without obstacles, waiting lines or hassles.

The Biometric boarding system has had a positive effect on airports all around the world. The introduction of such a technology in India will streamline the boarding process and who knows? Queues at the airport might become a thing of the past!
