Fly to Gate automates document and ID verification processes for airports

March 15, 2017 - 

Gemalto and IER have partnered to create Fly to Gate, a self-service solution that takes travelers smoothly from their home to the airport departure gate. The solution offers travelers the choice between mobile check-in or self-service kiosks and includes bag drop points, border control, security and boarding gates.

The Gemalto and IER Fly to Gate solution supports multimodal biometric verification including facial recognition, document verification and straightforward integration with immigration systems, enabling rigorous standards of security and outstanding operational efficiency for airports and airlines. Fly to Gate can meet individual airport operator requirements, and has the potential to make virtually all traveler handling processes automatic.

Executive VP of Government at Gemalto, Frédéric Trojani, commented: “The appetite for automated, self-service travel experiences is already evident in the success of electronic travel authorization, online check-in and automated border eGates. For the first time, our solution offers an opportunity to reap the full benefits of this trend, working with leading partners whose solutions have been proven in numerous deployments.”
