THE BEGINNING OF A
As many as 7.8 billion passengers will travel in 2036, a near double of the 4 billion air travellers in 2017, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
When travelling, the journey is often as important as the destination. However, the increasing numbers of travellers emphasize the need for balancing efficient passenger processing with enhanced security.
Airports and airlines have realised the need to adopt new strategies to proactively support the capacity growth, as well as lower operational costs, identify new revenue streams, and improvise passenger flow to enhance the travel experience.
NEC is at the forefront of providing seamless, secure and efficient solutions for airports, airlines and governments across the globe.
TAKE YOUR PASSENGER JOURNEY TO NEW HEIGHTS!
With more people flying today as well as heightened security threats, passengers are asked to go through more checks and screenings. All this leads to a poor flying experience.
NEC One ID technology enables a passenger’s biometrics and travel information to be captured on a single record. This can then be used as a trusted token to identify him to each stakeholder easily, eliminating the need of repetitive identity checks and ensuring process efficiencies at every touchpoint.
ACCELERATE THE AUTHENTICATION OF PASSENGERS.
By capturing passenger’s biometric and travel information into a single digital record, travelers will be able to use this token for identification at each step of their journey.
One ID provides integrated identity management across the travel process that allows passengers to authenticate their identity online or in person for all stakeholders, ensuring an efficient flow within the airport.
Biometric technology allows a passenger’s personal details to be captured through a biometric scan at the first touch point in the journey. This biometric record is checked against the passenger’s travel documents and a secure single token is created. Then, at every touchpoint in the journey – whether it’s during self-bag-drop, at border control or while boarding the aircraft, passengers can simply walk-through with their biometric ID.
MOVE TO A FUTURISTIC MODE OF TRAVELER AUTHENTICATION.
Traditional document-based methods of identification are labor-intensive and time-consuming. They are limited by the accuracy of biographic information obtained from suspects who may use aliases and other false data. These methods can be complicated as criminal history and immigration records reside in different, non-integrated systems.
Biometric passports or E-Passports, combine traditional paper passport with a contactless smartcard containing biometric information. Biometric information about the passport holder is authenticated against information on the chip. This aids in document security by deterring forgeries and tying the passport to the individual by a secure, verifiable method.
According to IATA’s Global Passenger Survey 2017, 82% of the travelers would prefer to use E-Passport for their travel activities.
SAY GOODBYE TO LONG QUEUES.
The registered traveler program is designed to facilitate smooth and frictionless passenger journey. According to IATA’s Global Passenger Survey, 64% of the passengers chose biometric identification as their preferred travelling token. A traveller who opts for registered traveller program (One ID) can enrol and authenticate their identity once, he can then use this digital identity to auto-fill his information at the time of booking flights, confirm his identity at security and even pass through border control just using his smartphone.
GIVE PASSENGERS A SMOOTH TRAVEL EXPERIENCE
For many travelers, the most stressful part of catching a flight is waiting in a line at the airport for security checks. Airports are constantly facing pressure to ensure stringent security while optimizing limited airport infrastructure & space.
Seamless Travel offers more self-service options to travelers while optimizing operational costs for airports. It covers different areas of passenger journey from check-in to self-boarding. Once a traveler’s identity is verified, he can use this digital identity to auto-fill his information at the time of booking flights, confirm his identity at security and even pass through border control just using his smartphone.
Automated Border Control
MAKE BORDER CONTROL PROCESSES ROBUST, ACCURATE & RELIABLE.
With rapid increase in international travel and trade, complexity of border control has increased significantly. There are increasing incidents of illegal crossings, use of counterfeit IDs / travel documents, and smuggling. Passengers have also identified border control as a major challenge hampering their travel experience. Hence, airport authorities are looking to reduce complexity and time associated with border control processes without compromising airport security.
NEC’s Automated Border Control solution quickly verifies passengers and their travel details against government databases to help speed up passenger flows at border control checkpoints while improving security and resource management.
LEVERAGE ONE ID FOR SECURE & SEAMLESS TRAVEL.
Advances in technologies have come in support of airport authorities to ensure stronger security and seamless travel experience. Airports around the world are focusing on One ID solutions as it enables them to identify passengers quickly. Data sharing across multiple touch-points provides easy access to threat level information, criminal activity record and travel history of passengers.
Through NEC’s world renowned biometric technologies, authorities can verify passengers quickly. Enabled by risk-based screening through biometric identity verification, the security checks provide a seamless, secure and efficient walk-through experience to the passengers.
