Fast and seamless travel: From dream to reality in Singapore…

For years, airport and government authorities have discussed how they need to make their processes more efficient and impose biometric identification processes within all processes for departing and arriving travelers. In a unique project shared between the government and the airport authority, using a holistic approach to the whole subject of security (for both border and traveler identity) Changi Airport in Singapore has integrated biometrics within all processes to support the tracking of physical travelers whether arriving or departing. 
This presentation will look at how the technology and processes have created not just a smart border environment, but a wise border environment: a border that achieves the dream of a seamless movement of people through a border and airport without any need to stop.
•    A joint government/airport authority project at Changi Airport has integrated biometrics within all processes; 
•    The project incorporates biometric checks across bag drop, immigration (departing and arriving) and boarding for facilitation and security;
•    Technology and processes have created not just a smart border environment but a wise border environment: a border which achieves the dream of a seamless movement of people through a border and airport without any need to stop.
