PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 10, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Airports in the 21st century face twin challenges. On the one hand, as the threat of global terrorism and other criminal activity continues to loom, airports are tasked with the daunting prospect of keeping passengers safe, borders secure, and criminal activity contained. At the same time, airports also face the challenge of moving passengers through security checkpoints as quickly and as efficiently as possible. As security grows more rigorous, wait times tend to grow longer, but airports in Britain are taking action to change all of that; their efforts have won the attention of Securiport
According to The Daily Mail, Heathrow and other British airports are growing increasingly concerned over the long wait times experienced by British citizens, returning home after travels abroad. As such, these airports have announced plans to effectively "fast-track" business class travelers through the border control process, reducing delays for some--but not all--travelers.
This plan has been noticed by the American-based company Securiport. Though based in Washington, D.C., Securiport is a company zealous for providing immigration processing, border control, and airport security technology to national governments all over the world. The company is best known for its Integrated Immigration Control System, which allows airports to more effectively monitor for potential criminal threats while also reducing wait times for passengers. Securiport has responded to the Daily Mail story with a press statement.
In the company's statement, Securiport summarizes the difficult task that lies before airport authorities. "The increasing number of passengers traveling around the world is putting a huge toll on airport immigration control systems, so we have to ask the following question: How can these systems keep security standards at high levels and at the same time reduce processing times to deal with the increasing demand?"
"Solutions such as the one proposed in the article work, but only for a handful of people, thus not really solving the problem," continues the statement from Securiport. "Securiport is well aware of this issue and works to provide the most advanced immigration control systems that rely on biometric identification."
Securiport's system implements advanced, non-invasive scanning technology to quickly and efficiently detect any potential security threats. "Relying on these identification methods allows for processing times to be reduced, because it reduces interaction with the traveler, and increases security standards by crosschecking with databases from many international security agencies," the company concludes.
Securiport has delivered its Integrated Immigration Control System to national governments and local airport authorities around the world. The company is passionate for using state-of-the-art technology to keep borders secure and airline travelers safe.
