Los Angeles International Airport, one of the busiest in the world, recently incorporated IDEMIA technology into its new West Gates departure gates. It’s a turnkey security solution for passengers, airlines and airports, and it’s based on facial recognition.

IDEMIA equips Los Angeles airport with facial recognition

Facial recognition technology installed at Los Angeles Airport complies with the security measures defined by the US Congress, but also allows passengers to board faster, more efficiently and without contact. Many other airports have called on IDEMIA’s know-how, demonstrating its long-standing commitment to secure and efficient passenger traffic solutions. This system was rated number 1 in the latest Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

A collaboration with LAWA

Idemia is proud to work with LAWA, the United States Customs and Border Protection, and more than 50 airlines to keep passengers safe. Large-scale solutions have been deployed to the current crisis at Los Angeles Airport and are significantly improving the passenger experience.

Of course, US nationals who do not wish to display their facial images can still be checked in by an airline agent.
