During the 67th Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit in Singapore, IATA revealed a full-sized vision of its Checkpoint of the Future.
IATA’s design has been developed to enhance security while reducing queues and intrusive searches at airports through the use of intelligence-driven risk-based measures, supported by various technologies that are largely available today.
By determining the level of screening required based on biometric identification and risk assessments established through better use of passenger data, this new approach will stream travelers through one of three different screening lanes:
1. Known Travelers
3. Enhanced Security
The life-sized three-lane model attracted a lot of attention, with hundreds of delegates walking through the Checkpoint's security lanes - including IATA’s Chairman of the Board - Dave Bronczek, ICAO's Council President Roberto Kobeh González, and ,US Transport Security Administration (TSA), Administrator John Pistole as well as IATA’s Director General and CEO, Giovanni Bisignani and Director General and CEO designate Tony Tyler. The presentation was a great success and the model will be shown again this year at AVSEC World 2011 (4-6 October, Amsterdam).
