Lisbon Airport Smart Access Control

ANA Airports of Portugal SA and Vision-Box SA installed boarding eGates in Terminal 1 at Lisbon Airport in December 2012, allowing passenger access to the departure lounge.
According to Vision-Box, the vb i-match checkpoint gates enable faster and automated processing of passengers by validating their boarding passes, whether paper or electronic.
Currently in its pilot phase, the concept is hoped to enable more self-service options at the airport, increase passenger flow and allow customers to have more control.
Lisbon Airport’s Director João Nunes commented:  “This partnership allows ANA to offer the most advanced technologies in the implementation of self-service solutions for passengers in complete alignment with the IATA Travel Fast programme, which is also supported by the ACI.
Since 2006, more than 300 vb i-match eGates have been installed in more than 30 international airports.
