Idemia to launch biometric travel platform in North America

This solution is said to be the sole 'interoperable' traveller identity platform.

Identity security and authentication solutions provider Idemia is set to roll out the travel solution ID2Travel in North America to enable ‘frictionless’ journeys.

ID2Travel is said to be the sole ‘interoperable’ traveller identity platform that can support the complete passenger facilitation ecosystem.

This capability is built on identity management and biometric identification.

It can be incorporated as part of the airport, airline or through Idemia’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-rated biometric capture technologies.

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

Through a mobile device, travellers can enrol from home by scanning their passport or any state ID and uploading a selfie for verification.

After enrolment, passengers will be able to move through the airport by using biometrics.

Additionally, travellers have the option to remove their enrolment and their data will be taken down from the system.

Subsequently, the solution empowers users to safeguard their personal identity information (PII).

Idemia I&S North America travel and transport senior vice-president Lisa Sullivan said: “Prior to Covid, Americans took approximately 2.3 billion trips over a one-year period and this makes the need for the passenger experience to be even more frictionless and seamless as we return to pre-pandemic travel patterns.

“With that experience and privacy in mind, the timing couldn’t be more ideal to launch our ID2Travel offering in North America to improve passenger flow and maintain a touchless experience while balancing interoperability throughout the broader travel ecosystem.”

The company provided a complete biometric enrolment to gate frictionless passenger facilitation solution at Changi, Aéroport Paris Orly and Iceland.

In June, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) deployed a facial recognition solution by Idemia in its new West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal.
