With the implementation of a new facial recognition system from Vision-Box, the international airport in Bangalore (BLR) will be the first airport in India offering passengers an end-to-end paperless travel experience.
The system is designed to simplify the passenger journey by making it paperless from registration to boarding. As the passenger moves throughout the airport, facial recognition will identify him without repeated queuing and presentation of boarding passes, passports or other identity documents.
“Your face is your boarding pass,” said Hari Marar, CEO of the airport operating company in a news release. “BLR Airport will continue to lead from the front in transforming air travel in India by leveraging technology. Vision-Box’s state-of-the-art biometric technology combined with its passenger flow platform will enable a seamless journey for our passengers, without obstacles, waiting lines or hassles, from registration to boarding.”
