Croatia Airlines — Croatia’s national air carrier and a member of the Star Alliance, improves the quality of its service with the integration by the German company 2e Systems of Smart Engines OCR SDK into its mobile application. Available for iOS and Android, the solution speeds up the passenger’s onboarding process by scanning the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) on passport.
To perform the recognition, the passenger is invited to show his identity document to the camera of his smartphone and hold it for less than 2 seconds, during which the system automatically detects the MRZ and extracts the necessary data to prefill the Croatia Airlines application form.
It is important to underline that for preventing any leak, all calculations are performed on the device itself in real time, without transferring any data to an external servers for processing.
The solution has been integrated into Croatia Airlines mobile app made by 2e Systems, which specializes in web, mobile and communications solutions for the airline industry. The application is available in four languages – English, German, French, and Croatian.
In addition to document scanning feature, passengers can also check their flight status in real time; by simply specifying the flight number, the airline or the airport, passenger receives updated information on the status of a particular flight, directly from Croatia Airlines operating system. In addition to that, the passengers may use the checkout option if they wish to cancel their flight.
The upgraded version of Croatian Airlines application is available for download on the App Store and Google Play.
