Air Travel continues to grow at a staggering pace, with over 8 million people around the world flying each day. Flights are fuller, lines are longer, and security continues to be more stringent. Biometric security solutions using a combination of face, fingerprint, and iris recognition in particular, offer the potential to streamline travel, decrease queues, and increase the personal touch for each traveler – all improving customer satisfaction and helping to limit stress on travelers, airports, and airlines alike.
Tascent’s high throughput and mobile identity products provide a complementary capability improving a wide range of air travel processes, from bag drop, airport security, boarding and even in-flight services.
Tascent and Panasonic Avionics Corporation, the world leader in in-flight entertainment and connectivity, are collaborating to enhance the air travel experience from takeoff to touch down.
Tascent’s biometric identity solutions, in conjunction with Panasonic Avionics’ in-flight entertainment and communications systems, will provide user-friendly and streamlined identity recognition before departure, during flight, and upon arrival. Our combined capabilities will support industry trends toward smart airports and the connected passenger journey, and we anticipate that a wealth of new offerings – such as in-flight service personalization and seatback payment authorization – will result.
Strategic Partnership: Embross
Tascent has partnered with Embross Inc., a leader in self-service airline and airport technology, to deliver transformative biometric capabilities across the air travel experience.
