NEC / Star Alliance I:Delight
NEC began airport biometric procedures in 2020, in collaboration with Star Alliance, providing a smooth, more convenient experience for international travelers. Passengers simply pre-register their facial and passport information, allowing them to walk through security and the boarding gate. NEC plans to expand the service around the world and connect it to other services such as baggage check-in, lounge access, duty-free shopping, car rentals and hotel check-in. The technology has also been implemented in a pilot project in the Japanese resort of Nanki Shirahama, where customers can pay for everything with just a glance.
