UNI-PASS, a self check digital security system developed by Israel’s Airport Authority, launched at Ben Gurion Airport.
The security system utilizes biometrics in issuing a smart card to passengers traveling abroad. This passenger screening in which passengers simply swipe their smart card at each security check point, is said to speed up the security process as whole. In addition the IAA said the system will create an identical screening process for each and every flyer.
UNI-PASS replaces the standard question-answer method currently practiced at airports, an IAA spokeswoman tells the Jerusalem Post.
Currently the pilot UNI-PASS is being tested on El Al Frequent Flyers Club members.
