Amadeus finalizes the acquisition of Vision-Box, integrating biometric solutions for seamless traveler journeys from booking to arrival.

Amadeus announced it has completed the acquisition of Vision-Box, a leading provider of biometric solutions for airports, airlines, and border control customers.

The deal has now received all necessary regulatory approvals in all relevant markets.

The combined offering of the two companies will allow Amadeus to deliver a fully integrated traveler journey, from the moment of booking to arrival at the airport, including border control and boarding.

Vision-Box’s Founder and CEO, Miguel Leitmann, will now join Amadeus, together with its 470 employees. Miguel Leitmann will report to Decius Valmorbida, President, Travel, Amadeus, and Vision-Box solutions will become part of Amadeus’ portfolio offering for airports & airlines.

Amadeus has acquired privately-owned Vision-Box for an agreed price (EV) of approximately €320 million.
