MINETA SAN JOSÉ (SJC) COMMITS TO USING FACIAL RECOGNITION BIOMETRIC TECHNOLOGY
Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) today announced its partnership with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in using facial recognition technology to process arriving international travellers.
SJC, which says the move will "secure and enhance the customer experience", is the first West Coast airport to commit to processing all arriving and departing international passengers with facial biometrics.
The airport plans to implement biometrics for all departing travellers at seven gates in the fall 2018, as part of the biometric exit mandate.

SJC has experienced a significant increase in the number of international passengers arriving to its International Arrivals facility, growing to 438,800 in 2017 from 199,900 international arrivals in 2015.
“After a smooth and effortless flight, the biometric entry allows our passengers the luxury of a hassle-free entry at SJC," noted Tomomichi Saito, ANA SJC/SFO vice president and general manager.
As part of its innovation efforts, CBP built a facial biometric matching service to support airport and airline stakeholder integration for biometric exit, entry, and other passenger services.
Facial comparison technology is used because it seamlessly integrates into the airport boarding process and is minimally disruptive to the flow of travel.
“The SJC community made the right choice to bring biometrics to Silicon Valley travellers, who are known to be early adopters of technology to enhance how they live, work, play, and travel,” said SJC's aviation director, John Aitken.
