The air travel industry is a nexus of digital transformation. Biometrics and identity verification technologies are central to this trend, which is elevating the passenger journey and enhancing operations. Airlines and airport facilities alike are investing in facial recognition, document reading, and mobile onboarding technologies to address the challenges posed by retuning passenger volumes. But not all identity technologies are created equal. And that’s why HID has published a series of air travel industry resources to help you understand the modern travel experience and how a new digital identity paradigm – modular identity verification — can help get passengers in the air with the highest levels of convenience and safety.
HID’s aviation industry eBook, “Elevating the Passenger Journey With Biometrics and Identity Verification,” introduces the challenges faced by airlines and airports in this era of accelerated digital transformation, and presents the tools to address them elegantly and within the operational constraints of the demanding travel industry. Check out this eBook to learn:
- How widespread digital transformation is affecting the air travel experience.
- Why identity verification is integral to solving aviation’s biggest challenges.
- How a modular approach to biometric and identity can start elevating the passenger journey immediately.
Vito Fabbrizio, Managing Director of HID’s Biometric Business Unit, delves into the reality of today’s air travel experience and presents some fascinating figures about airlines and airports’ enthusiasm for deploying biometrics to enhancing the passenger experience.
