With 30 million people arriving at Heathrow Airport every year, the UK Border Agency wanted to enable a swift, secure and more traveler friendly border passage. To do so, British Airports Authority (BAA) recruited Accenture to deliver a new automated border solution, using leading edge technology and biometrics, like those successfully deployed at Stansted Airport and Schiphol Airport.
The eGates at Heathrow now clear a third of a million passengers every month. As the number of people in the European Economic Area (EEA) with biometrics passports increases, so too will be the demand on the eGate solution at Heathrow and Stansted.
