Germany’s Tegel Airport in Berlin has installed a new automated border control system in the form of the latest eGates, which allows travellers entering Germany to use the EasyPASS border control system to expedite their journey through customs.
Using electronic automated border control is the answer to cutting queues as passenger traffic grows year-on-year. All over the world, airports are installing automated borders technology to improve passenger experience and reduce waiting times throughout the airport environment.
The Tegel Airport system requires the use of an electronic passport and allows German citizens to travel under a new German identity card for interior flights.
Security measure are also improved with automated authenticity checks and facial recognition software that compares a live image taken at the eGate to the image stored on the electronic passport chip. No personal data is stored during this process at these particular gates.
Passenger processing systems are changing and revolutionising the entire issue of border control within the airport environment.
