CLEAR BEN­E­FITS

SP's Aviation - - CIVIL -

It is not dif­fi­cult to see why air­ports and air­lines would em­brace this tech­nol­ogy so en­thu­si­as­ti­cally. It will im­prove se­cu­rity over­sight and el­e­vate the pas­sen­ger’s travel ex­pe­ri­ence while speed­ing up pas­sen­ger pro­cess­ing and re­duc­ing the re­sources needed to man­age the travel jour­ney.

Look­ing fur­ther into the fu­ture, Re­naud Ir­minger, Di­rec­tor of SITA Lab, sees this tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ing even fur­ther. “For us the ul­ti­mate goal is to have the sin­gle iden­tity to­ken per­ma­nently and se­curely stored on your phone and you sim­ply swipe your de­vice at each step of the way at any air­port in the world,” says Ir­minger.

“There is still a lot of work to be done in agree­ing the global stan­dards and se­cu­rity pro­to­cols needed to use the mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion across all air­ports but clearly this is the next step.”

While the full po­ten­tial of sin­gle to­ken travel will con­tinue to evolve over the next few years, SITA Smart Path™ puts a truly walk­through ex­pe­ri­ence within reach of air­ports sooner than ex­pected.
