French company Morpho has signed a contract with Singapore’s Changi Airport to deliver a biometric control system that enables passengers to travel using facial recognition.

The solution also includes a self bag drop system, self-boarding gates and integrated border clearance, and will help improve efficiency and passenger travel experience at the airport.

The company has designed the system based on its MorphoPass biometric applicant management system and MorphoWay automated gates.

Slated to be operational from 2017, the technology will be installed at Terminal 4 and support the airport’s fast and seamless travel (FAST) concept for passengers.

"The solution eliminates the need for manual identity verification by staff."

Changi Airport Group Technology chief information officer and senior vice-president Steve Lee said: "We partnered with Morpho to deploy this integrated passenger processing system with the objective of transforming passenger experience.

"It’s the first time that facial recognition technology will be used at Changi Airport.
