Recognizing the increased importance of security as
airports transition to self-service and off-site check-ins, ARINC
Incorporated has launched the VeriPax Passenger Reconciliation System.
VeriPax combines powerful, automated security
screening with passenger reconciliation in real time, to improve
passenger flow and enhance security at airport checkpoints.
ARINC has this week been showcasing the VeriPax system
at the International Aviation Security Conference 2009 (AVSEC) in Hong Kong.
processes at most airports are currently manual,” said Randy Pizzi,
Vice President and Managing Director of ARINC’s Asia Pacific
Division. “With VeriPax automated screening, airport security can
authenticate passenger boarding passes in just seconds by
validating their status against the airline system. VeriPax can
also perform other types of identity checks in real time.”
The VeriPax application enhances manual screening of
passengers for access to a terminal’s airside areas. It can detect
and highlight duplicate boarding passes, and can be customized to
perform other checks, such as validating passenger names against a
"watchlist" database or checking passenger itineraries against
valid flight schedules for the day. Airlines can also customize
the checks required to suit their business needs.
VeriPax technology is designed with standard off-the-shelf
components, providing a flexible and expandable solution for the
simplest types of checks. It can also be integrated with local and
external data sources, including biometric security applications,
to deliver more robust screening and verification.
The VeriPax system supports the industry’s transition to 2D
bar-coded and plain paper boarding passes, in line with IATA’s
Simplifying the Business initiative.
version of VeriPax is currently being developed at Singapore’s
Changi Airport to facilitate self check-in passengers and to
enhance the security infrastructure.
