Identity management technology developer Vision-Box has completed the installation of its automated border control (ABC) eGate solution at Curaçao International Airport in the Caribbean.
The self-service eGates allow passengers in possession of a European, Canadian or American e-passport to authenticate their passport and identity through facial biometric verification, helping to expedite the arrival and departure process through the airport on the Caribbean island.
Jean-François Lennon, vice-president for global business development and sales, Vision-Box, said, “Curaçao International Airport is now endowed with a future-proof technological framework that guarantees improved security and the expedited flow of low risk passengers, thus establishing the sustainable foundations of the island’s planned growth.
“The intricate, intelligent security infrastructure won’t scratch the passenger experience; on the contrary – the modern traveler will experience this as a positive leap, right into the future. Either on holiday or on a business visit, the passenger will feel empowered, excited and fulfilled to experience this hassle-free way of crossing the border.”
Wilhelmus Ignacio, CEO of airport operator Curaçao Airport Holding, said, “The eGates allow the airport to become more modern, inviting passengers to enjoy an easy border control check. Aside from this benefit, it also allows the airport stakeholders to increase airport security, facilitation of travel, and enhanced border system integrity. It’s a transformation that is placing Curaçao International Airport in the forefront of innovation in airport management and passenger experience in the region.”
