With more than 24 million passengers a year, Vienna International Airport is a major hub for flights towards Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Since the end of 2017, automated border control systems from secunet provide convenient, secure and efficient border control services for arrivals and departures. The new-generation secunet easygates – 25 of them in total – were installed and brought into service in a record time of just three months after the contract had been awarded. Thanks to an optimised document reading process at the eGate entrance and a new-generation face recognition module, both passengers and border control officers benefit from a faster control process and a highly reliable biometric verification. In addition to the eGates, secunet also supplied the software for the monitoring, analysis, reporting and administration workstations, a central server system for the integration of the background systems and for the management of the eGates, as well as training, support and maintenance services.
