Orlando International is said to be the first US airport to fully deploy the US Customs & Border Protection Biometric Entry and Exit Program. Over the coming months, SITA is due to integrate Smart Path, its sophisticated biometric technology, at the airport’s 30 international boarding gates.
John Newsome, chief information officer, GOAA, said, “The innovative boarding process we tested is really popular with passengers. They simply look at the camera and within seconds the gate opens and they can board the flight. It is easy, fast and most importantly, secure.”
According to the airport, passengers can expect to enjoy 100 percent biometric boarding for international flights at Orlando International Airport by October.
