Tokyo Haneda Airport has completed deployment of Collins Aerospace’s ARINC SelfPass biometrics solution. The technology aims to streamline passenger processing through reduced physical interactions and bottlenecks at multiple passenger touchpoints.
As part of the project, Collins will install 98 self-service check-in kiosks, 30 biometric enrolment kiosks, 104 biometric devices for self-bag drop, 17 biometric automated security gates and 42 biometric automated self-boarding gates.
Shoichi Ohashi, Tokyo International Air Terminal Corporation’s Senior Manager for the Facility Department, commented: “Our ‘Face Express’ system will allow passengers to efficiently proceed through procedures at the airport (baggage drop, security checkpoint entrance, boarding gate) utilising facial recognition, eliminating the hassle of showing their passport and boarding pass. We worked closely with Collins Aerospace to achieve this and enhance passenger convenience at Tokyo Haneda Airport.”
Rakan Khaled, Vice President, Airport Systems for Collins, said: “Our ARINC SelfPass biometrics solution at Tokyo Haneda Airport streamlines passenger processing while improving airport efficiency and security. Despite the challenging pandemic environment, we were able to manage staffing and suppliers to ensure smooth delivery of the solution.”
