Dutch airport demonstrating facial biometric solution developed by Vision Box

AMSTERDAM Feb. 10, 2017 – Boarding quickly and easily without showing your boarding pass or passport is the goal of the biometric boarding trial in operation at Schiphol Airport. Involving KLM, the three-month initiative intends to test facial recognition to expedite and speed up passenger boarding, recognizing them by their face.

At a specially selected gate at the airport, a dedicated kiosk was made available for passengers to register for the trial, by scanning their passport and their boarding pass, as well as enroll their face image. This will allow them to quickly go through a biometric eGate simply looking at a camera, without showing any document.

Vision-Box™ and Schiphol have been working together in the scope of the recently announced framework agreement, developing innovations and creating smart ways of improving ease of travel, speed, and airport processes. As the airport aims to become “Leading Digital Airport” in 2018, Vision-Box™ was the partner allowing one further step in that direction.

It is expected that after the trial, biometric boarding will roll out to more boarding gates at the airport.
