Travel technology specialist, Vision-Box, has launched new touch-less automated pre-security gates at the Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan.
The initiative supports Kansai Airports’ wider efforts to promote a ‘Fast Travel’ experience for passengers, allowing for a smoother departure procedure.
By automating the boarding pass confirmation procedure at the departure gate, the self-scan will replace the need for inspectors to manually check and scan passenger boarding passes, speeding up the overall travel experience.Fast contactless operation also helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases especially during the current covid-19 pandemic.
Miguel Leitmann, CEO of Vision-Box, said: “The team at Kansai International Airport share our vision to modernise and change the landscape of the travel and aviation industry for the better. While Vision-Box continues to drive such technology in the field, Japan is no doubt one of the leaders in technological development and this partnership is testament to our hard work and expertise in delivering such innovation.”
Vision-Box has been at the forefront of contactless automation technology, having installed Europe’s first facial recognition e-Gate at Faro International Airport in 2007. The company’s key partners and customers include the UK Home Office, US CBP, London Gatwick Airport, Eurostar, Air Asia, Emirates, KLM, Dubai Airport, Schiphol Airport, Bangalore International Airport and JFK.
