Nice Côte D’Azur Airport Installs Facial Recognition eGates

Nice Côte d'Azur Airport in France recently commissioned the first PARAFE eGates with facial recognition.

IN Groupe, a leading global biometric identity specialist has partnered with Gunnebo, a leading provider of security solutions and services, to deliver eGates featuring their latest-generation biometric technology.

By increasing security while streamlining the throughput of travellers at borders, this system aims to improve the satisfaction of all and of passengers first and foremost.

Sixteen eGates will be installed at Nice Airport at both arrivals and departures.

They will operate by means of a facial recognition system and are anticipated to enable passengers from the Schengen area, holders of a new biometric passport, to reduce the time normally spent during manual checks.
