This year, we take the technology one step further and demonstrate an entire solution for airline travel - how biometrics is utilized throughout the entire process of booking, check-in, boarding, and other services related to travel where authentication is needed The concept is based on our experience from the aviation industry and also developed in dialog with Scandinavian Airlines," says Jonas Andersson, Vice President of Business Development at Precise Biometrics.
