IDEMIA, a global pioneer in identification technologies and biometric solutions, was named GMR Group’s DigiYatra technology partner on Tuesday.
The Aviation Ministry coordinates “DigiYatra,” an industry-led effort to realize Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India vision.
We are excited to work with GMR Group on DigiYatra, another government digitalization program. “As a market leader for passenger flow facilitation solutions, we constantly innovate to safeguard passenger trust and help pave the way for even smoother and more secure future travel,” stated Matthew Foxton, India Regional President, IDEMIA India.
DigiYatra will use IDEMIA’s facial recognition to verify domestic flyers.
GMR CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar said, “We are glad to partner with IDEMIA’s best-in-class Passenger Flow Facilitation solution, which will enable and speed up passenger clearance and increase security with embedded anti-spoofing capabilities with the least manual intervention” (DIAL will review).
“IDEMIA’s award-winning biometric and digital technologies have equipped over 250+ airports worldwide. IDEMIA powers Singapore’s Changi Airport, which has been crowned the “world’s best airport” 12 times.
