Aruba Happy Flow is an innovative passenger process in which the passenger is only required toshow his or her passport once throughout the journey at the airport. The use of facial recognition then allows the passenger to proceed to check-in, drop off baggage, pass the border and board the aircraft, all without being asked to show a passport or boarding pass again.

In order to do this, Aruba Happy Flow combines the public process of border control with the private passenger process at the airport. This is unique in the world and has been designed to streamline the passenger process, making it fast and secure.
