McCarran Airport adopts Collins Aerospace’s SelfPass biometric solution


Collins Aerospace’ SelfPass facial recognition biometric solution was on display at this year’s Future Travel Experience Global exhibition.

McCarran International Airport, host of the Future Travel Experience Global show, is set to install Collins Aerospace’s SelfPass facial recognition biometric solution at all international gates.

Passengers using SelfPass are not required to pre-register, instead they need to scan their face to validate their identity against the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Traveler Verification Service, which retrieves their boarding details, and they then proceed to board the aircraft through the auto boarding gate.

“We have a 20-year history of successfully collaborating with McCarran Airport and we’re ready to help them streamline the passenger journey even further with expanded use of our SelfPass biometric solution,” said Christopher Forrest, Vice President of Global Airport Systems for Collins Aerospace.

“SelfPass takes less than one second to capture and process a passenger’s facial image and eliminates the need to repeatedly present travel documents, making the process more efficient for both passengers, airlines and airports.”

According to Collins, SelfPass is already live with one airline following a trial throughout the summer. Wider deployment of SelfPass is set to commence in November with the addition of a second airline. In total, 19 airlines will be operational when the installation is complete.
