Prague Airport Expand Automated Border Control
Following the successful implementation of automated border control gates at Prague airport in 2011, the Czech border police have agreed to expand the project, known as EasyGO.
The project expansion will involve the installation of ten more eGates in both arrivals and departures and will also involve an upgrade of the entire airport IT infrastructure which will include a new Terminal Control Centre and maintenance contract.
Using a Secunet system, Prague airport uses electronic authentication of ePassports, identity cards and uses facial scanning and comparison with electronic data.
Automated border control solutions are becoming commonplace across the world as countries strive to improve security.
