Hastening the boarding process and getting passengers takeoff ready is not an easy task, since it implies the performance of a number of last minute tasks that can delay the flight significantly. One of these tasks is the control of the passengers’ boarding passes and ID documents, which is currently done by the ground staff manually. This control checks that the ID photo corresponds to the passenger’s face and that the passenger’s information in the boarding pass coincides with the one in the ID document.
Sigma’s product checks the information as well as the authenticity of the ID document, saving time, increasing security and allowing ground staff to focus on more complex issues.
The passenger information is processed by the automated system and is not stored, so there are no privacy issues.
