Identity solutions firm IDEMIA has revealed details about how its biometric technology is powering authentication at Changi Airport's new terminal in Singapore

In September 2015, Changi Airport selected IDEMIA to provide biometric identification and authentication services as passengers pass through the airport’s most innovative terminal.

The chosen solution was based on IDEMIA’s MorphoPass Airport Solution, which provides automated passenger ID checks using facial recognition at all departure control points.

The system includes a centralized platform used by airlines and the airport to manage the various steps required for passenger authentication and identification.

MorphoFace (a face recognition device) and MorphoWay (a fully automated gate for both border control and smart boarding) form part of this end-to-end solution and are fully deployed in Changi Airport Terminal 4 as part of the Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) program. T4 can handle up to 16 million passengers per year.

“IDEMIA is thrilled to help passengers enjoy a secure and innovative seamless experience at Terminal 4, to provide the best customer experience to travelers. At Changi Airport we are proud to contribute to the creation of the airport of the future, combining the best of biometric accuracy, design efficiency and program execution”, declared Philippe Larcher, IDEMIAExecutive Vice President Public Security.

In the context of soaring world airport passenger numbers (2016: up 6.3% to 3.7 billion and 700 new routes[2]), the need for passenger identification coupled with demanding safety standards is becoming ever more critical.
