Veridos eGates accelerate border control procedures at Luxembourg Airport
Berlin, September 28, 2017 – The Police Grand-Ducale Luxembourg have commissioned Veridos to install ten eGates for automated border control (ABC: Automated Border Control) at the country’s international airport. The solution reduces the time taken to check passengers while also ensuring high security during the verification of travel documents.
Automated border control systems – known as eGates – are the ideal solution for efficient and secure identity document verification. Passengers in Luxembourg will be able to enjoy the benefits of this innovative solution from 2018. Veridos will be supplying ten eGates to Luxembourg Airport, which is also the country’s sole international airport. In addition, the Veridos VeriGO® system will be used in Luxembourg to facilitate the integration of existing infrastructures and databases.
“Our border officials have been using VISOTEC® devices to verify identity documents in real time for more than a decade, making the introduction of eGates the next logical step on the road to creating the most safe and innovative border control system possible,” says Germain Schmit, project manager for ABC gates of the Luxembourg Police.
Integrating eGates for departure and arrival is part of the ongoing expansion of Luxembourg Airport. The ability to verify identities within just 18 seconds via eGates will soon lead to a welcome reduction in waiting times. “We are delighted to be able to support Luxembourg with the most modern border control technology on the market, namely our eGate solution. This will ensure they are well prepared to cope with the increasing number of passengers,” says Veridos Senior Vice President Global Sales, Labinot Carreti.
