IDEMIA has crossed the line on its 2019 tender to install biometric kiosks in 8 Australian airports.

The “Gen3 Kiosk” offers self-service authentication and went through a rigorous trial phase and performance testing prior to deployment.

The solution will fulfil the immigration pre-check procedure at these airports and fast-track registrations, which can be easily integrated with any Entry/Exit system.

According to IATA, their solutions address a security problem that is progressively getting worse with 8.2 billion air passengers expected to use air travel by 2037 while budgets and resources remain tight.

The successful deployments were at Darwin, Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Coolangatta, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney airports coming after the installation of 109 Gen3 model Kiosks that passed phase one at the end of 2021.

Wee Liang TAN, Senior Vice President, APAC Public Security & Identity, at IDEMIA made some remarks on the end of the project. 

“We are delighted that the Australian government has once again selected IDEMIA as their partner of choice to help enhance the passenger journey. We are proud of this 18-year partnership that is still going strong today. The innovative Gen3 border control solution contains advanced biometric capabilities that not only help streamline the passenger’s airport experience, but also increase security. This is the result of the IDEMIA team’s continued dedication to successfully deploying such an innovative and industry-leading solution”.

IDEMIA will be exhibiting on our Expo floor at Identity Week Europe on 13-14 June 2023 at the RAI Exhibition Centre, Amsterdam.
