New automated gates open at Kansai International Airport
Kansai International Airport in Japan has become the latest gateway to introduce e-gates supplied by Vision-Box.
The Osaka located airport has opened five banks of 12 pre-security gates (GT11) at Terminal 1 as it strives to ensure a ‘Fast Travel’ experience for passengers.
By automating the boarding pass confirmation procedure at the departure gate, the self-scan will replace the need for staff to manually check and scan passenger boarding passes, speeding up the overall travel experience.
Jeremy Goldstrich, COO at Kansai Aiports, says: “We will continue to proactively introduce cutting-edge technology to improve the convenience of the airport and provide a comfortable and new travel experience.”
Vision-Box CEO, Miguel Leitmann, notes: “We are delighted to announce a partnership with Kansai Airports. This is another positive step forward in increasing our presence in the country as we aim to deliver innovate projects which focus on seamless travel and identity management.
“We believe that the team at Kansai International Airport share our vision to modernise and change the landscape of the travel and aviation industry for the better.
“While Vision-Box continues to drive such technology in the field, Japan is no doubt one of the leaders in technological development and this partnership is testament to our hard work and expertise in delivering such innovation.”
