Collins Aerospace’s SelfPass biometric solution is to be installed at all international gates at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada.
SelfPass has been designed to help streamline the passenger journey through the airport. The new solution does not require pre-registration. Passengers simply step up to the camera for a facial scan to validate their identity against the US Customs and Border Protection Traveler Verification Service, which retrieves their boarding details, before proceeding to board the aircraft through the auto boarding gate.
“SelfPass takes less than one second to capture and process a passenger’s facial image and eliminates the need to repeatedly present travel documents, making the process more efficient for both passengers, airlines and airports,” said Christopher Forrest, vice president of Global Airport Systems for Collins Aerospace.
The new solution is already live with one airline, following a trial over the summer. Wider deployment is set to commence in November with the addition of a second airline. In all, 19 airlines will be operational when the installation is complete.
