Airside Mobile, an Arlington, Virginia-based maker of a mobile passport app, raised $6m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Blazar Ventures and Grotech Ventures with participation from Bain Capital Ventures and 8VC.
The company intends to use the funds to grow Mobile Passport in new locations and to develop new identity-related products.
Launched in 2014 and led by CEO Hans Miller, Airside provides a Mobile Passport app that gives an easy way through US passport control and customs at 24 major airports and the one cruise port.
Available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play store, the app is authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and sponsored by Airports Council International-North America, The Boeing Company, and Port Everglades.
Over 2.5 million travelers have used Mobile Passport.
