Safe and controlled air travel is today a step closer, following the news that Travizory has secured investment from Atlantic Labs for its traveler management platform, which provides seamless digital interactions between travelers and host countries.
The Travizory platform enables countries to obtain directly from the travelers, such as identity information, biographic, biometric, itinerary key data, custom and health information such as COVID-19 test results and vaccine certificates. It is then combined with industry available data such as API-PNR and other data sources, to assess and validate a travelers’ risk level and to authorize or deny travel at the point of origin.
Travizory’s approach is completely touchless, reducing the health risks at the airport and enabling a drastic reduction of queue times. It is fully aligned with IATA, ICAO, ACI and WTTC recommendations for the safe reopening of air travel and tourism. The Travizory platform also interfaces with track and trace apps, giving government authorities full visibility about people’s whereabouts.
Renaud Irminger, CEO of Travizory said, “Our platform goes beyond anything else available because of our extensive use of touchless technology. It extends to every part of the journey, including security. We are also very careful about data management and take privacy concerns extremely seriously. The data we work with is only used for travel and is never used for anything else.”
Atlantic Labs has a long history of funding and partnering with successful digital and travel companies (i.e. Omio, GetYourGuide), and creator-driven platforms, to help advance their growth.
The Atlantic Labs investment comes to Travizory at a time when governments are looking for solutions to re-open their borders during the COVID-19 epidemic.
Irminger continued, “As the aviation industry opens up again, it is essential we do so in a safe and secure way, that is sustainable in the long-term. The last thing any of us want – airlines, airports, the supply chain and, most importantly, travelers – is to see another closure of air traffic. This funding from Atlantic Labs comes at the perfect moment: we are working with several governments to enable the safe reopening of borders and we will launch our platform within weeks.”
The investment will ensure a strong, independent future for Travizory, funding the first deployments and further developments of its core traveler management platform that fuel unprecedented seamless digital interactions between travelers and host countries.
Christophe Maire, founder and CEO of Atlantic Labs said, “We are backing the experienced founders of Travizory on a mission to rethink border entry procedures leading to large savings for the government and travelers alike. Year after year travelers have to provide their identity information to an increasing number of parties at multiple checkpoints, including airlines, airport, hotels, mobile operators and so on. Each occurrence is causing a risk of identity theft and a liability as this identity information is often stored for multiple years and forwarded un-securely to multiple government entities. We cannot wait for international travel to become simpler thanks to the Travizory platform”.
Travizory is a Swiss-based technology company founded by senior executives uniquely combining air transport industry, biometrics, mobile, border security and border management expertise. They founded Travizory to create seamless digital experiences between governments and travelers.
To help more countries become compliant with United Nations Security Council resolutions 2178 and 2396 and fight terrorism and transnational crime, Travizory also provides as standalone its next generation Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Record (PNR) SaaS solution, deployable at a fraction of the cost of previously available systems.
