Working with partner iProov, Entrust's remote identification solution will allow Eurostar passengers to register their face and passport before travel. On arrival at St. Pancras International train station, passengers will use their face to check in for their train and their passport data will be automatically sent to UK border force for checks.
Gordon Wilson, Vice President Identity Verification at Entrust, commented: "We are confident that the Seamless Travel Solution will help launch the world into a new era of travel, allowing travellers to feel safer and experience less hassle, while also enabling operational efficiency to both border agencies and the entire travel industry.”
Less hassle while travelling
The tech is targeted at airlines, train operators, cruise lines, airports, border agencies, and other key operators in the global travel and tourism ecosystem. It will lead to less hassle due to the contactless biometric corridors that employ facial recognition tech to confirm the traveller's identity.
