Securing Access to Territories and Facilitating International Exchanges

Access to Territories

Facilitating, expediting and simplifying border controls securely

Passenger traffic is growing and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimates that 8.2 billion people will travel by air in 2037, almost double the current number. The risks of illegal activities, such as terrorism or identity theft, are becoming global. All the while, passengers are demanding an easier and more efficient experience.

From travel document design to systems dedicated to verifying these documents, authenticating passengers using biometric data and managing incoming and outgoing traffic at a national level, our solutions cover all layers of border control, whether front-end (passenger interfaces) or back-end (systems managed by the authorities).

By 2022, with the evolution of access controls in the Schengen area, your systems will also have to include all the data of travellers who wish to travel to Europe. In response to this, the IATA has developed the ONE ID concept. Thanks to integrated identity management, passengers will be able to identify themselves at each airport contact point using biometric recognition.

The aim is to achieve system interoperability between airports, airlines and governments to reduce repetitive checks and to create a continuous flow of traffic, whilst maintaining a high level of security.

Our Passenger Identity Management solutions adapt and integrate these requirements to open up to other sectors, readying for the future today. They also include solutions for controlling and managing differentiated access for people and vehicles in large public spaces and event venues.
