Finnair is offering passengers flying out of the US the opportunity to use biometric boarding at Los Angeles Airport. The eGate has an integrated biometric-enabled camera which captures the passenger’s facial image. The image is securely sent to the CBP Traveler Verification Service, which conducts a matching process with the stored digital facial token, captured at the initial immigration process.
The Vision-Box Traveller flow orchestration platform is used to confirm the identity of boarding passengers and their documents with quick and secure data exchanges. Within a few seconds, the system reconciles the passenger and their flight and opens the eGate door allowing the passenger to board the aircraft. The eGates also offer a self-service method to change one’s seat.
