Gatwick Airport recorded an astonishing 2.8 million passengers traveling through the airport this January, +12.1% on 2016. Long-haul routes also continue their booming growth, +23.2% ahead on the previous year.
These impressive figures highlight the importance of a strong operational and technological framework to support mass increases in passengers. Without this, the airport would have probably found it difficult to cope last month.
Luckily, Gatwick could take advantage of the the world-renowned technology implemented by Human Recognition Systems.
From managing the vetting of airport employees before they received their ID passes, to alerting staff to long queues by measuring the airport passenger flow, HRS was on hand to keep the airport safe, secure and efficient as more people passed through.
MFlow facial recognition cameras ready to monitor the passenger flow at Gatwick Airport.
The HRS systems currently deployed in Gatwick are:
MFlow Journey - The world's most accurate queue measurement system using facial recognition cameras. MFlow Journey has been keeping Gatwick informed of their passenger queues since 2011 - read the case study here.
MFlow Track - The sister product of MFlow journey, Track is a verification system for passengers using North as well as South Terminals - read the case study here.
