Today, the air transport community is experiencing extraordinary traffic growth. Speeding up the passenger process can decrease the level of security, so biometrics are a key enabler to overcome this challenge while maintaining high security standards. At IDEMIA, we believe that global biometric adoption in airports is the future and paves the way for the digital transformation that stakeholders are expecting. Such an augmented experience should rely on a biometric technology that is trustworthy, that offers maximum convenience, and that is flexible in its use so that passengers can be in control of their data. Not only will IDEMIA discuss the importance of biometric technology for the future of the airport experience, but we will address airport-related biometric trends to look out for in 2020. The widespread adoption of facial recognition technology and an increased focus on the development of ethical boundaries and regulations are just some of the key trends to track next year.
