Star Alliance, NEC and SITA Sign Teaming Agreement, Paving the Way to Expand Touchless Journeys across Member Airlines
- Passengers will soon be able to use their biometric ID as their boarding pass across a vast network of airlines and airports.
Frequent flyer program customers of Star Alliance member airlines will soon be able to use their biometric identity across any participating airline at any participating airport following a new agreement between the world’s largest airline alliance, NEC Corporation and SITA.
The Star Alliance biometrics platform will be able to use SITA’s shared airport infrastructure already available in more than 460 airports.
The agreement announced today is aimed at accelerating the availability of biometric self-service touchpoints across Star Alliance’s member airlines while delivering a faster, touchless airport experience.
