Identity Verification for Air Travel Passengers

Empower a secure, seamless, self-service travel experience.

The Passenger Journey Is Complex

Airport navigation contains a sequence of touchpoints and processes — from check-in to boarding and beyond — all packed with pain points along the way.

To alleviate this travel turmoil, reliable and swift identity verification is a “must-have” in order to provide passengers with the secure, seamless journey that’s long overdue.

Smart Identity Verification Is Modular

Airport environments have broad identity application requirements — from traveler enrollment, document reading and validation to facial recognition, biometric matching and more. Sometimes a single, comprehensive solution is not always the best fit.

HID’s modular approach enables airlines and airport operators to add identity verification capabilities quickly and easily to existing systems without “rip-and-replace” or expensive migrations to a new platform altogether.
