  • Congonhas Airport launches the Boarding System + 100% Digital Boarding Insurance with the use of simultaneous passenger biometrics in the transportation service between Rio de Janeiro (Santos Dumont) and São Paulo
  • The technology, developed by IDEMIA, captures facial biometrics in a fraction of seconds, providing even more agility to the boarding process, avoiding queues and delays.

SÃO PAULO – The Project Boarding + Insurance 100% Digital Boarding System, using the facial recognition of the Brazilian government, arrives this Tuesday (June 15) at Congonhas Airport (SP). For the first time in the world, passengers of the air transport service between the capitals of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro will participate in the simultaneous end-to-end testing of this technology without the need to present a boarding pass or identification. document. The Project of the Ministry of Infrastructure, developed in alliance with Serpro and the Special Secretariat for Bureaucratization, Management and Digital Government of the Ministry of Economy, has already been tested at the airports of Florianópolis (SC), Salvador (BA), Santos Dumont. (RJ) and Belo Horizonte (Confins).

After the approval of the pilot project, the Federal Government will advance with actions to effectively implement the technology in the main Brazilian airports. The technology aims to make the boarding process at airports more efficient, agile and safe. “It is the first time that tests are carried out simultaneously in two of our airports, thus establishing, in an unprecedented way, a 100% biometric air shuttle between RJ / SP, which has the fifth largest movement in the world”, highlights the secretary MInfra executive, Marcelo Sampaio.

Throughout the day, Azul Linhas Aéreas passengers traveling between Congonhas and Santos Dumont airports will be invited to test biometric facial recognition technology to access both the boarding area and the aircraft in both terminals. “Embarque + Seguro combines biometric validation and data analysis, ensuring a precise, agile and secure validation of the identity of passengers, so that they can travel with more comfort and peace of mind. The solution complies with the General Data Protection Law (LGPD) and is based on security in the processing of personal data against misuse or unauthorized use ”, highlights the president of Serpro, Gileno Barreto.

For the president of Infraero, Brigadier Paes de Barros, “the Boarding + Insurance of the air ferry unites two essential elements that streamline boarding processes, which are safety and ease for the passenger and the entire civil aviation system.”

According to the Director of Public Security and Identity (PSI) of IDEMIA in Brazil, Márcio Lambert, “Facial recognition is a global trend and the Embarque + Seguro Project, carried out jointly by Minfra and Serpro, shows that Brazil is on the right path to airport digitization. IDEMIA technology is applied in the most modern airports in the world, such as Changi in Singapore, and offers a high level of security for passengers, airlines and airport operators, since its algorithm is highly accurate, reaching a very high rate of authenticity in the identification of individuals. IDEMIA is proud to participate in this project together with the Federal Government of Brazil and to enable the world’s first 100% digitized end-to-end boarding system in an executive air transport service ”.

“The latest Global Passenger Research conducted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) says that 70% of those interviewed are willing to share their biometrics for identification purposes during the boarding process. Our global experience helps satisfy society’s need to fly again. This innovative project developed by the Federal Government allows travelers to enjoy a calmer, safer and more comfortable boarding experience and places Brazil at the forefront of the digital transformation movement. IDEMIA as a world leader in augmented identity has the mission of facilitating the flow of passengers by creating the possibility of interacting and traveling in a more connected way. Participating in the first air shuttle with a fully digitized end-to-end boarding system, at both airports, is an important milestone in our history, ”explains Rodrigo Costa, PSI business development director at IDEMIA LATAM.

MFACE technology, developed by IDEMIA, captures facial biometrics in seconds, further streamlining the boarding process, avoiding queues and delays. The solution combines the convenience and security of data validation, respecting the privacy of passengers according to the RGPD, and ensures a more hygienic process by eliminating the handling of documents and paper, thus avoiding the risk of contamination.

“IDEMIA’s biometric system control follows high quality, reliability and safety standards and offers more agility and comfort to passengers, making the airport’s operating process smarter, identifying airline passengers more accurately and generating the government required security. ” adds Márcio Lambert.

How does it work

When registering at the airport, the Azul Linhas Aéreas passenger is invited to participate in the project. If the passenger agrees, then a message is sent to the cell phone informed in the application, requesting authorization to obtain the passenger’s data, including the social security number and a photo. With prior consent, the airline assistant, using the application developed by Serpro for this purpose, performs the biometric validation of the citizen, comparing the data and the photo taken on the spot with the government databases.

After validation, the passenger is released to enter the departure lounge and the aircraft passes through biometric control points, whose cameras carry out the identification of the passenger without the need for the user to present any document or boarding pass.

Total security

The pilot project measures indicators such as reduced waiting time, access to the departure lounge and the aircraft, as well as operating costs. With the tests, airport security is expected to increase, as facial recognition enables accurate identification of passengers.

“We are moving towards fully secure biometric boarding at all airports in the country. In addition to the fact that the process is safe from a health point of view, by eliminating the handling of papers during the pandemic, the total protection of user data is guaranteed, since the 100% Digital Embarque + Seguro Boarding System complies with all the precepts of the LGPD ”, says Marcelo Sampaio.

Associations

Serpro is MInfra’s strategic partner in the country’s digital transport agenda, but Embarque + Seguro also has the collaboration of airlines and airports where the tests have been carried out, which has made it possible to improve the project at each stage. The pilot test of the air shuttle is being implemented with the support of Infraero and Azul Linhas Aéreas; and the facial identification station technology was developed by Digicon, IDEMIA and Azul / Pacer.
