“SKY Group” improves biometrics system to increase screening and disease prevention measures at airports.

In the 2567 Annual Conference on Disease Control and Public Health Safety,


“SKY Group” spoke at the session titled “A new chapter for communicable disease control and prevention at point of entry in the next decade,” which was part of the 2567 Annual Conference on Disease Control and Public Health Safety with the theme “Shaping the Future of Public Health 2030.” The talk offered insights into the evolution of aviation technology and the incorporation of biometric technology. This method aids in passenger screening at entry and exit points, as well as disease prevention and control, by decreasing interaction between passengers and airport officials.


Mr. Sitthidech Mayalarp, CEO of SKY ICT Company Limited (SKY Group), underlined the ongoing developments in airport technology. Since 2015, the global aviation industry has experienced significant development, with over 1.2 billion people commuting by air each year, expanding gradually at 5-7% per year until the global impact of Covid-19 in 2019. Thailand’s first Covid-19 case was reported in January 2020, triggering ongoing government actions to reduce the danger of disease transmission.


The effects of Covid-19 have transformed worldwide air travel practices, shifting away from traditional hard-copy methods and toward digital alternatives. This involves the use of aviation technology and IT systems to expedite services, such as self-service kiosks for passenger check-ins, which reduce congestion and contact between customers and airport staff while improving overall safety.


In Thailand, the number of international passengers going through the six major airports (Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, and Hat Yai) surpassed 100 million in 2566 and is predicted to increase by 20% in 2567. Recent developments include the installation of Common Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS) in 12 Thai airports, which include systems such as CUTE (Common Use Terminal Equipment), CUSS (Common Use Self-check-in System), CUBD (Common Use Bag Drop), PVS (Passenger Validation System), and SBG (Self Boarding Gate).


Mr. Sitthidech also stressed the latest disease prevention technologies and biometric systems for effective passenger identification in airports, which use One ID technology. Biometrics technology has already been introduced at Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports, improving security and shortening traditional check-in times. These innovations aim to provide a touchless travel experience that is both unique and convenient for passengers using airport services.


Airports around the world are increasingly using biometrics technology to improve security and automate entry processes, including Changi Airport in Singapore, Dubai International Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Sydney Airport, and Haneda Airport in Japan, which are setting standards for automated immigration processes within airport terminals.


SKY ICT Company Limited (SKY), Thailand’s premier technology supplier focusing on aviation-related technologies, smart security solutions, and digital platforms, continues to innovate with innovative solutions that correspond with the growth of the aviation industry. Their mission is to improve people’s lives and provide the greatest travel experiences possible by offering a variety of services such as integrated systems, applications, security systems, and convenience services in airport terminals.
