On Track Innovations (OTI) has confirmed it has received follow-on orders to support the UniPass programme initiated by Israel Airports Authority (IAA).
The programme is intended to expedite the security checks process at Ben-Gurion Airport and uses OTI’s SmartID technology and products.
According to OTI, with the new system, those wishing to expedite their screening process at the Ben-Gurion airport will be required to obtain a contactless chip-embedded smart card that will enable the storage of finger and facial biometrics and will include recent photos and personal information. Once enrolled to the system, a passenger will be required to present the card in front of a reader and answer a series of security questions. Once the identity has been confirmed, the passenger will be able to continue with the check-in process. According to the IAA, at the first stage of the programme, El Al Matmid Frequent Flyer club are able to join the programme, before being gradually expanded to include all departing passengers who voluntarily register.
