And the timing couldn’t be better: in the next two decades, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is anticipating air travel will double, to 8.2 billion passengers. 

SOLUTIONS

At the forefront of solving these problems is Pegasus Airlines, a forward-thinking Turkish company, committed to innovation and determined to revolutionize the travel process.  Their goal is to expedite check-in and boarding by making personal data entry intuitive, fast, secure, and accurate.

Solution accumulates ID document template database(>10 000) from 248 countries, in 138 languages, making it the largest database of its kind on the market.  Regula maintains an in-house development team and does not subcontract any of its activities.

The Regula Document Reader SDK was successfully embedded into the Pegasus Airlines mobile application and adjusted to the existing UX/UI, offering seamless plug & play integration while guaranteeing the security of personal data and full GDPR compliance. The solution is fully capable of providing real-time, fully on-device processing in the offline mode.

The simplified check-in has been well received by Pegasus passengers. They have proved to be enthusiastic adopters of mobile booking and check-in and have greatly appreciated an intuitive, streamlined travel experience. 

Conclusion 

It is clear that in the long term, airports envision biometric technology that will create an autonomous journey, enabling passengers to complete their journeys without having to produce their passports or boarding cards.  We don’t know how soon this will happen but what we do know is that Pegasus Airlines and Regula are taking very real steps to lead the way.
