Idemia will launch a biometric travel platform in North America


Identity security and authentication solution provider Idemia is set to deploy the ID2Travel travel solution in North America to enable “frictionless” travel.

ID2Travel is considered the only “interoperable” traveler identity platform capable of supporting the entire passenger facilitation ecosystem.

This capability relies on identity management and biometric identification.

It can be integrated with the airport, the airline or via Idemia’s biometric capture technologies, classified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The solution uses identity verification, enabling mobile enrollment with digital credentials on a passenger’s mobile device, biometric devices, and back-end technology services.

Using a mobile device, travelers can register from home by scanning their passport or any ID and uploading a selfie for verification.

After registration, passengers will be able to move around the airport using biometrics.

Additionally, travelers have the option to delete their registration and their data will be removed from the system.

Subsequently, the solution allows users to protect their personal identity information (PII).

Lisa Sullivan, senior vice president of travel and transportation for Idemia I&S North America, said, “Before Covid, Americans made approximately 2.3 billion trips over a one-year period, which makes the even smoother and seamless passenger experience as we return to pre-pandemic travel habits.

“With this experience and privacy in mind, the timing couldn’t be better to launch our ID2Travel offering in North America to improve passenger flow and maintain a contactless experience while balancing interoperability. across the travel ecosystem.”

The company has provided a complete biometric enrollment solution to facilitate passenger flow at Changi Airport, Paris Orly Airport and Iceland.

In June, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) deployed a facial recognition solution from Idemia at its new west gates in the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
