Veridos commissioned to install ten eGates at Luxembourg Airport
Veridos has been commissioned by the Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg to install ten eGates for automated border control at Luxembourg international airport.
Integrating eGates for departure and arrival is part of the ongoing expansion of the airport and are expected to be in use by 2018. The solution verifies identities within just 18 seconds and is expected to lead to a reduction in waiting times.
“We are delighted to be able to support Luxembourg with the most modern border control technology on the market, namely our eGate solution,” commented Veridos Sales Director, Labinot Carreti. “This will ensure they are well prepared to cope with the increasing number of passengers.”
The Veridos VeriGO system will also be used in Luxembourg to facilitate the integration of existing infrastructures and databases.
“Our border officials have been using VISOTEC devices to verify identity documents in real time for more than a decade, making the introduction of eGates the next logical step on the road to creating the most safe and innovative border control system possible,” says Germain Schmit, project manager for ABC gates of the Luxembourg Police.
Earlier this year, an Acuity Market Intelligence report emphasized that ongoing concerns about national security are driving border authorities to continue the adoption of biometric and digital identification based automation, including the deployment of airport eGates and kiosks.
