Star Alliance member airlines frequent flyer program customers will soon be able to use their biometric identity at any participating airline, at any participating airport, following a new agreement between the airline alliance, NEC and SITA .

By connecting to SITA’s Smart Path solution, Star Alliance’s biometric platform will be able to use SITA’s shared airport infrastructure already available in more than 460 airports. With the global presence of SITA and NEC, multiple biometric projects can be delivered in parallel, accelerating the availability of passenger biometric processing for Star Alliance member airlines around the world. According to the companies, this will be essential to enable Star Alliance to deploy biometrics more quickly.
