Indra has deployed quick access border control systems based on MegaMatcher, VeriFinger and VeriLook in the airports of Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat for European citizens. The newly installed systems facilitate the rapid entry into national territory, and therefore the Schengen common European area, to travelers who own a Spanish electronic ID card or a European Community electronic passport. The systems perform a dual biometric test using facial and fingerprint recognition for passenger identity verification. All citizens of the European Union countries, the European Economic Area and Switzerland are eligible to use this system.
