FacePhi, world-leading company in digital identity verification, continues to expand the use of its technology. More precisely, the company has just signed a contract with Aena (Spanish Airports and Air Navigation) after being awarded the public tender for “the supply and update of a facial biometrics solution” for its airports.
With the signing of this contract with the world´s largest airport operator by a number of passengers, which has a network that extends throughout Spain and other countries such as the United Kingdom -London-, Mexico and Brazil, FacePhi continues its expansion in the international airport sector. The company will be responsible for providing its digital onboarding and authentication technologies that will be applied to several passenger and employee management processes at the different Aena airports, which will be carried out exclusively with the knowledge and prior consent of the user and excluding its use for video surveillance.
In this way, FacePhi will be in charge of providing digital solutions for the different phases that passengers go through during their experience at an airport: from registration, check-in and access to the security area or VIP lounges, to the very moment of boarding a plane. Thus, the identity verification technology applied to these processes will speed up travel procedures and improve passengers’ experience, avoiding crowding and reducing physical contact with both airport staff and other passengers, among other advantages.
On the other hand, Aena will also extend the use of its technology to internal management and operation processes of its employees, such as carrying out maintenance, security or service activities. In this way, the safety of its workers and facilities will be reinforced as a whole, in addition to avoiding the use of paper or plastic identification cards, with the consequent environmental benefit and waste minimisation.
The initial contract has a duration of 4 years for a total amount of approximately 1.5 million euros.
