Vision-Box contactless biometric platform deployed at Carrasco International Airport
Carrasco International Airport has introduced self-service biometric boarding enabling LATAM Airline passengers to board without having to show their passport or boarding pass.
The Easy Airport ABC solution by Vision-Box was first deployed at Carrasco International in 2016 for biometric border control. With the introduction of self-service biometric boarding, the use of biometric technology is being extended to all remaining passenger interaction stages, accelerating traveler flow processing and offering a frictionless journey to airport guests.
The Easy Airport program has been developed to transform Carrasco Airport into a fully end-to-end contactless experience, where your face is your passport. Sixteen biometric self-boarding gates are just a part of the expansion planned for Easy Airport. “When all the phases of the Easy Airport program are completed, the positioning of the Carrasco Airport will be one of the most advanced terminals in the region in the use of self-service technology and biometrics for the management of passenger flows,” explained Diego Arrosa, CEO at Puerta del Sur S.A. (concessionary of the Carrasco International Airport and a division of Corporación America).
According to the announcement, this deployment marks the start of a strategic modernization plan that will span over 50 airports operated by Corporación America. The company has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Vision-Box to bring its travel technologies to other commercial airports in its network.
“About 2 years ago, Vision-Box and Corporación America envisioned Carrasco Int. as the blueprint for a fully connected 4.0 digital airport, with passengers journeying seamlessly without obstacles,” added Miguel Leitmann, CEO of Vision-Box. “Our joint vision now materializes through the implementation of our common-use orchestration platform which fuels the biometric passenger touch-points at multiple steps of the traveler’s journey.”
Last month Vision-Box and Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) agreed to launch biometric self-boarding technology at Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru.
