SITA and AOptix agree VAR deal


SITA has become an AOptix Value Added Reseller (VAR) partner.

SITA has more than 2,700 customers in over 200 countries and territories across 300 airport locations worldwide. Almost every airline and airport in the world does business with SITA.

Using AOptix InSight iris recognition and face biometric technology, SITA will be working with airport, airline and government customers to deploy automated solutions aimed at delivering, fast, accurate and effortless identity screening to speed up passenger throughput at airports and borders.

“We have been impressed with AOptix’s commitment to improve the overall passenger experience with non-invasive, easy-to-use products that minimise the time and effort needed to confirm a traveller’s identity. This reduces queue times and disruption at the airport,” says Sean Farrell, SITA director, Biometric Services.

He adds: “The AOptix InSight iris and face biometric products combined with SITA’s iBorders BioThenticate matching and management system and its passenger processing systems will deliver world-class solutions for border management and airport security checkpoints.”

“As an IATA Strategic Partner for Passenger Experience and Security and Facilitation, we’re pleased to be working with SITA on streamlining and automating the end-to-end travel experience, from check-in to pre-board screening, boarding and immigration processing,” says Joseph Pritikin, director of Product Marketing at AOptix. “SITA has an impressive technical capability and worldwide footprint that brings the potential to provide our InSight system to thousands of airport, airline and government customers.”
