The Riyadh Airports Company has also implemented the Smart Travel Journey experiment at King Khalid International Airport where passengers will be recognized by their digital faceprint without the need for the boarding pass.
The SITA Smart Path solution enables efficient biometric enrollment, as passengers will become their own boarding passes just by looking at SITA FacePod’s camera. The passenger’s face becomes their boarding pass.
The airport hopes the SITA-assisted aircraft boarding will reduce the boarding time by at least 20%, in addition to speeding up the process and maximizing security.
The airport considers this an important step to convert the Riyadh airport into a smart airport and maximize customer satisfaction.
