Idemia biometric immigration system deployed to Singapore’s new Seletar Airport


An Idemia automated immigration system with biometric technology has been implemented at Singapore’s new Seletar Airport, following its installation at Changi Airport Terminal 4 and for departures from Terminal 3, the company has announced.

The Seletar Airport system includes secure automated immigration e-gates, flexi counters for manual or automated processing, and system oversight features.

“Singapore is at the forefront of air travel innovation and IDEMIA is very proud to play a part in the country’s innovation demonstration,” Idemia Asia-Pacific President Tim Ferris says. “Our systems have been very successful at Changi Airport and now we plan to do likewise at Seletar Airport.” The new e-gates meet the needs of air passengers by cutting queues and making travel departure smooth, comfortable and highly secure.

Passengers at Changi Airport can use facial recognition for the baggage drop process, digital boarding passes with MFace biometrics, facial and fingerprint biometrics for border and security checks, and facial biometric self-boarding.

Acuity Market Intelligence recently forecasted a 27 percent CAGR in the number of airport biometric touchpoints from 2019 to 2022.
