Isavia, which handles the operation and development of all airports in Iceland, instigated a major alteration to its ID pass management process at Keflavik International Airport by adopting MTrust, the online identity assurance tool.
In a visit to another airport’s ID Centre that used MTrust, Isavia representatives learnt about the online pass application process. They were particularly impressed with the interface between MTrust and CEM AC2000 access control system, the same system Isavia uses at Keflavik International Airport. The CEM integration became one of the major reasons for choosing MTrust over other providers.
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.
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.
