Amadeus has completed the acquisition of Vision-Box, a 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 enable Madrid-headquartered Amadeus to deliver a fully integrated traveller journey, from the moment of booking to arrival at the airport, including border control and boarding. 

Vision-Box’s 470 employees, led by founder and CEO Miguel Leitmann, will join Amadeus. Miguel Leitmann will report to Decius Valmorbida, president, Travel, Amadeus, and Vision-Box solutions will become part of Amadeus’ portfolio offering for airports and airlines.

A fast-growing global business with expected revenues of €70m, and an estimated normalised EBITDA of close to €20m in 2023, Vision-Box is partially owned by Keensight Capital, a private equity fund dedicated to pan-European growth buyout investments. Amadeus has acquired privately-owned Vision-Box for an agreed price (EV) of approximately €320m.
