Vision-Box immigration control platform expanded at Lima Airport in Peru
The expansion of the Vision-Box Automated Immigration Control Platform for arriving and departing passengers at Lima´s Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM) was officially announced last week. La Paz Airport CEO Juan Jose Salmón and IATA representative Ramon Jiménez closely collaborated on the project.
For the past few years, Peru migration authorities, Lima Airport and Vision-Box have worked closely to redesign the airports’ border management and passenger clearance model. The first stage was completed in 2016 with the deployment of an integrated monitoring and control platform that included opening six ABC eGates for self-service biometric and ePassport checks. The solution has now expanded to accommodate the pronounced growth of passenger numbers.
Passengers now have an additional twelve eGates to self-process through the border in line with modern international biometric identification standards and passenger experience trends. Peruvian officials say the expansion will assist airport authorities to meet the needs of the 30 million annual passengers projected to pass through LIM by 2021.
The system currently includes the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) with Passenger Name Record (PNR) information to be added soon. According to a company statement, this combination will form a security suite that puts LIM on the forefront of the world’s most advanced airports.
An Australian trial of Vision-Box’s facial recognition system recently matched 94 percent of travelers.
