Press Release 29 Jan 2024 456 Views

London, UK, January 26, 2024 – Facial recognition and identity verification systems play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of security checks and reducing waiting time at airports, saving up to 400,000 cumulative hours every month. Facia is the fastest facial recognition technology platform providing ease of airport security checks and immigration automation services globally. 

Airport security checks hold great significance to world safety as thousands of individuals take flights every day. Comprehensive digital inspections ensure unlawful activities are kept under control. Implementation of advanced facial recognition technology is proving to be a way forward in enhancing overall security and reducing criminal activity across regions. 

Passport queues at airports can take 30 minutes to hours during demanding periods, wasting the time of passengers and workers alike. Digital identity verification through facial recognition can save time without compromising on the quality of security. Facia’s immigration technology is revolutionizing airport security and reducing waiting times by providing accurate and timely results with more than 99% efficiency.  

Facia, a robust liveness detection and facial recognition platform, is proving to be a one-stop solution for airport waiting times. The technology is considered the fastest in identity detection with the ability to reduce airport queue times by 65%. It can detect fraudulent identities against world regulatory databases within seconds. 

Security queue times in UK airports are increasing day by day. The average waiting time at the Birmingham airport starts from 30 minutes. By adopting digitalization in security checks, the management can save up to 20 minutes per passenger each day. This roughly estimates hundreds of free minutes per day and thousands of free minutes every month regarding the total number of travelers. Tech-forward countries like the USA and UAE are already benefitting from the latest facial recognition technologies, reporting their average passport control time to less than 5 minutes per passenger. The advanced systems produce more efficient checks while reducing the workload on security workforce. 

The importance of a quick and accurate security check is much more than just saving time. Excessive waiting time has been found to have a negative effect on the emotional response of passengers due to boredom and negligence by the management. It also inversely affects the airport’s image. Long queue times are a major inconvenience for the passengers and security personnel, extending working hours to the point of exhaustion. 

Advanced facial recognition platforms like Facia are changing the quality of immigration security checks globally. “We aim to enhance airport security and create a better traveler experience using advanced technology,” said Mujadad Naeem, CEO of Facia. The company’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) compliant efficient technologies add an additional layer of security to airport checkpoints while enhancing the traveling experience of immigrants and reducing waiting times by many folds. With digital recognition, immigration authorities can monitor border crossings with utmost precision.
