Next generation of eGates installed at Christchurch Airport in New Zealand

Morpho Australasia, a subsidiary of technology developer Safran Identity and Security, has completed the installation of multiple next-generation eGates at Christchurch Airport in New Zealand.

The installation is part of a national upgrade and innovation program by the New Zealand Customs Service (NZ Customs), which included the installation of a total of 51 next-generation border processing eGates across the country. The roll-out has already involved the installation of new border control systems at Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown airports.

The latest generation of eGates use facial recognition technology to compare images of the traveler against the data contained in their e-passport, providing passengers with the option of self-service passport control.

This speeds up the traveler experience with a one-step process, eliminating the kiosk and ticket which was part of the previous security process. They also have a smaller footprint to meet the space constraints of airports, while also containing Safran Identity and Security’s latest workflow and biometric matching software.
