  • The Airport of Geneva modernizes itself with
    its new East Terminal.


  • The SMACS solutions of FASTCOM efficiently implement the anti-return control for the flow of passengers.

  • The SMACS integrate optimally and invisibly into the architectural design of the East Terminal.


Lausanne, Switzerland – 4 April 2022

FASTCOM Technology SA announces the completion of the project with Geneva International Airport as part of the construction of the new East Terminal of the airport. Ultramodern with an elegant architecture, the new terminal implements all the necessary security measures. When passing from secure areas to public areas, the anti-return control of passenger flows is carried out by the SMACS solutions. The SMACS allow integration into the infrastructure without any visible architectural impact. This project was carried out in collaboration with the general contractor HRS.

The challenge: For its new East Terminal, Geneva International Airport must implement the necessary security measures while maintaining the ultramodern and open architecture. Among the various security measures, anti-return control is essential. This is to ensure that no passenger go back in the direction of the plane during the disembarkation procedure. Given the architecture of the new terminal, the traditional solutions based on metallic structures are not suitable. The anti-return control must be carried out by a system that does not require any additional metallic structure and that can be integrated perfectly into the architecture of the new terminal. Finally, flexible use according to operational needs must be possible.


The solution: The SMACS has the characteristics that meet the specifications. Invisibly integrated into the architecture of the new terminal, the SMACS perform anti-return control of passenger flows without requiring additional metallic infrastructure. Harmonious integration with other safety systems is also in granted.

“Security is a key element of the new East Terminal. Based on a collaboration initiated several years ago, we have validated that SMACS solutions meet our security requirements concerning the anti-return control of passengers, while integrating seamlessly into the design and architecture of the East Terminal"
