According to SITA, 41% of airports have already implemented some sort of biometric identity system, while almost three quarters plan to deploy similar technology by the end of 2021.

Travel-related businesses are also exploring new possibilites, including self-boarding gates.  59% of airports and 63% of airlines are expected to start introducing self boarding gatess over the next 3 years, and it has been suggested that Blockchain will be used by 40% of airlines and 36% of airports to verify a passenger’s identity by 2021.

“Biometrics not only have the power to create a more secure world by validating identity with more certainty, but also create a more seamless customer experience,” said Caryn Seidman Becker, CEO and chairman of airport security firm CLEAR.

“We picture a not-so-distant future where biometrics replaces the need for cash, credit cards and physical forms of identification – think health insurance cards, hotel check-ins, restaurants, car sharing, smart cities and more. The possibilities are endless.”
