Experts warn airports at over capacity

Published: Updated:

At the World Travel & Tourism Council Global Summit, which opened April 18 in Buenos Aires, there was a sense of urgency to deploy biometric solutions as industry leaders warned that airports, many already over capacity, cannot handle an additional 21 million additional fliers annually. Governments, they acknowledge, have little appetite to spend money expanding current facilities or build new ones. Biometrics, they note, have the potential of doubling capacity by speeding more travelers through existing terminals more quickly while simultaneously making the experience more pleasant.
