As part of the Airport strategy 4.0, is the second pilot to get underway after Menorca Airport, that in this case integrates the app as a novelty in the shipping process.
This joint project AENA and Iberia, using passenger face recognition so that you can board without the need to display documentation, will be tested on flights to Asturias and Brussels. Technological companies have also worked in their development Iecisa, Gunnebo and Thales.
The presidents of Aena, Maurici Lucena, and Iberia, Luis Gallego, accompanied by representatives of the aforementioned collaborating technology companies, have been tasked with presenting Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport this new facial recognition system in the boarding process.
This is the second pilot project of this type that Aena has launched, after the Menorca Airport implanted in March (more details at Digital AV), whose good results and the satisfaction shown by the passengers have now been incorporated into that of AS Madrid Barajas, with the novelty of registering a mobile device with the App of Aena and Iberia.
Based on identification technology through recognition of the physical and non-transferable characteristics of individuals, biometric systems equipment has been located in the billing area, access to the security filter and at the gate.
In these areas, biometric data of the passenger will be validated, your facial features (image of your face) and documentation (ID card or passport) travelers can board the flight without the need to show either the boarding pass or their identification documentation, speeding up the process and increasing security.
This validation of documentation with biometric data is performed only once during the pilot, provided that the passenger consents to subsequent flights.
Testing has begun with Iberia airline passengers flying to Asturias and Brussels, who can volunteer and travel more quickly, efficient and unhindered.
Aena and Iberia have worked on this project in collaboration with Iecisa, Gunnebo and Thales, companies responsible for developing, supply and install the necessary equipment for the testing. In this case, automated systems that include advanced document and biometric validation technologies that optimize passenger access time performance.
With this important breakthrough, Aena is at the forefront of the global airport sector, integrating into a single process all the steps to be carried out in this type of facility: security and boarding filter, allowing the registration of documentation (Idor or Passport and boarding pass), from the Iberia and Aena apps, any time before the trip.
This project is part of the strategy Airport 4.0 by Aena, that promotes the test, validation and implementation of innovative solutions that enable the provision of innovative and sustainable airport services, with maximum security, quality, efficiency and respect for the environment.
