OSLO, NORWAY - 28 March 2022 - Zwipe, a leading provider of on-card biometric
solutions, confirms that its biometric access control solution, Zwipe Access,
has been selected by Fraport AG as one of two partners in Fraport's
"Biometrics@Controllane" project.

Fraport AG - which ranks among the world's leading companies in the global
airport business - offers a full range of integrated airport management services
and boasts subsidiaries and investments around the globe. It operates within 31
airports globally, including the main airports in Frankfurt (FRA), New York
(JFK), New Jersey (EWR), Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Cleveland (CLE), Nashville
(BNA), Pittsburgh (PIT) and Delhi, India (DEL). Fraport has recently launched a
project within its Digital Factory to identify the optimal solution for
performing a biometric comparison between the airport ID card and the person
requesting access. The technology is planned to be used on a few selected
security checkpoints first.

Zwipe Access is a new, highly secure and at the same time easy to handle
biometric smart card solution for access control. It is battery-less and fully
compatible with market-leading card-based access control infrastructures. Zwipe
Access adds two-factor authentication to existing contactless card-based access
control systems without the need to upgrade any of the existing infrastructures,
meaning that no new readers, pin pads or cameras need be installed at the doors,
gates, or turnstiles. The biometric authentication provides assurance that only
the legitimate person is granted access.

"We are delighted to be selected as finalists in this MVP process for Fraport
AG, a lighthouse and leading innovator in the global airport industry. We look
forward to demonstrating the security and excellent user experience of Zwipe
Access in this MVP over the course of this summer. Authenticating legitimate
access card holders, Zwipe Access provides a step change in security and control
without changing the existing backend infrastructures and thereby saving cost
and time," said André Løvestam, CEO of Zwipe.
