EyeTicket & Sabre to Provide JetStream Iris Recognition

EyeTicket Corporation
and Sabre
Holdings Corporation (NYSE: TSG) today announced a new Marketing Alliance to provide JetStream passenger processing to Sabre customers worldwide.

The terms of the alliance give Sabre preferred access to EyeTicket`s JetStreamTM and EyePassTM products and services for their airline, airport and immigration control customers worldwide. EyeTicket has the reciprocal ability to offer the Sabre Aerodynamic TravelerTM and other Sabre products to its customers.

JetStreamTM is an iris-recognition-based service that positively identifies travelers, simplifies and expedites transactions, and provides maximum security and risk management at a competitive cost. After a quick one-time enrollment, customers can check-in and board the aircraft, check bags, or clear passport control simply by looking into a video camera for 1-2 seconds. The transactions are easy, fast and secure.

The Sabre® Aerodynamic Traveler? portfolio is a suite of passenger processing solutions designed to increase agent mobility, improve airport efficiency and maximize airline customer satisfaction by providing the highest level of service to passengers at the lowest possible cost. Whether it`s a self-service kiosk or an option to supplement and support check-in at the gate with wireless devices and gate readers, the Aerodynamic Traveler suite provides passengers with advanced technologies that enhance customer service and ensure airport security and convenience.

“EyeTicket is very pleased to team with Sabre in bringing biometric passenger processing to the transportation community”, explained Stewart Mann, EyeTicket Chairman and CEO. “Sabre`s core competence and strong position in the transportation industry will be pivotal in introducing and successfully implementing biometrics on a broad scale.”


“Sabre is offering the most advanced solutions to address the current environment, from streamlining passenger processing at the airport to providing the technology to respond to security requirements,” said Steve Clampett. “While this environment will continue to evolve, this agreement with EyeTicket ensures that Sabre will have the solutions ready to respond as requirements change.”
