Amsterdam Schiphol to speed up immigration





Passengers at Amsterdam Schiphol are being promised a speedier passage through immigration after the installation of new electronic border-crossing gates.

In a deal with Accenture, the airport claims the new gates will speed up the identification process by using the latest in biometric technologies, including facial recognition.

Accenture will initially deliver 36 electronic border-crossing gates to be used at Schiphol during 2011.

The company recently trialed similar technology at London Stansted and Heathrow, after which BAA and the UK Border Agency permanently deployed the electronic gates at these airports.
