SITA SmartPath Technology has been chosen by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) as the technology partner for biometric exit at Orlando International Airport, according to American Security Today.
Orlando International is the first U.S. airport to fully deploy the U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) Biometric Entry and Exit Program.
Over the coming months, SITA will integrate Smart Path™, its sophisticated biometric technology, at the airport’s 30 international boarding gates.
Earlier this year, SITA worked with GOAA, British Airways and CBP to incorporate the U.S. biometric departure check for British Airways’ customers.
The system makes passenger boarding quicker and easier, while it also incorporates the new secure biometric exit checks. British Airways is boarding flights of almost 240 customers in around 15 minutes.
With Smart Path, passengers just need to look at the camera, without having to present boarding passes or passports.
Over the next four months, SITA will integrate Smart Path at 64 boarding lanes, at 30 boarding gates across the airport.
