Keflavik Airport installs new ID pass application process


Isavia, the national airport operator in Iceland, has revealed that Keflavik International Airport has adopted a new ID pass solution developed by Human Recognition Systems.

In a statement, HRS said MTrust is the first system of its kind to handle the full process of airport ID pass application management, vetting and issuance online. 

Neil Norman, CEO and Founder of Human Recognition Systems:  “We are delighted to be working with Isavia on this project and providing a solution that will deliver increased operational efficiency, enhanced security and auditing, and a positive experience for on-airport customers by allowing passes to be issued faster. Isavia’s decision to deploy MTrust for Keflavik International Airport shows the growing trend toward automated cloud-based systems by major airports to improve security and efficiency in vital operational processes.”

The challenges associated with facing an average of 21% annual growth year on year are great for Isavia. To introduce new solutions at a faster rate, Keflavik International Airport’s preference was to choose COTS systems with a proven track record and reliable references.

HRS said other key benefits Isavia will gain from adopting Human Recognition System’s tool is the standardisation of the ID pass procedure, the minimisation of manual input at Keflavik International Airport’s ID Office and the elimination of incorrect, invalid and rejected passes. Isavia will also benefit from remote printing of temporary passes with enhanced security features, such as photography to aid visual verification and real-time checking of application validity.
