SITA ABCGates installed at Naples International

Air transport IT provider SITA has completed the installation of its automated border control (ABC) solution in Naples International Airport in Italy.

SITA’s iBorders BorderAutomation ABCGates use facial recognition technology to verify the passenger as the passport holder. This provides the traveler with an expedited departure or arrival process, with an average processing time of only 20 seconds. This allows the ABCGates to clear more than 2,000 passengers a day at the airport. The service is available to all EU citizens who hold a valid biometric passport.

Alessandro Fidato, director of infrastructure and operations at Naples International Airport, said, “The new technology has helped improve the passenger experience at Naples airport by speeding them through immigration while ensuring that we meet the highest security standards at Italy’s borders. The ABCGates are really a win-win technology for airports.”

Dave Bakker, president, Europe, SITA, said, “We continue to work with airlines, airports and government agencies around the globe to provide the best-in-class self-service border technology. Through the use of biometrics, we are able to enhance the passenger experience by providing a swift passage through immigration while adhering to the highest possible security standards.”

Giuseppe Musto, head of innovation and automation at Naples International, said, “We have introduced another step in the passenger journey at Naples International Airport, with a focus on quality and in accordance with the recent regulatory evolution in Italy.”
