Corporación America Incorporates a New Contactless Biometric Platform

Corporación America sets plans in motion to automate airports with a secure and contactless biometric platform, starting with Montevideo Carrasco International Airport. It will become the first fully digital Latin American airport to incorporate the biometric platform. It launched the transition with the infusion of a self-service boarding process, marking the first time in Latin America where passengers are able to board the plane without showing their passports or their boarding pass -- boarding securely with a face scan.

There are currently 16 gates that have the functioning program, with plans to expand the entire Carrasco Airport to become a complete "end-to-end contactless experience." The company has officially signed an exclusive collaborative agreement with Vision-Box to broaden this travel experience across a set of commercial airports throughout Latin America and Europe.
