The Japanese company, NEC Corporation, recently teamed up with SITA to create cutting-edge solutions that "will enable a secure, seamless, and automated journey at airports across the world." These identification technologies and AI solutions allow automated biometric boarding through face recognition software.
The partnership leverages both companies' technology to allow passengers to use their digital identity on their smartphones to check-in, drop off luggage, pass through security and immigration. In addition, the technology will offer customized displays based on the age and gender of the traveler and seamless payments for a faster and safer experience.
These new solutions were designed to make airlines low-touch in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and make travel safer for passengers and staff alike.
