In Australia began to use a new way of passport control at the airport, which will allow in the future to get rid of passports. Reported by the News.com.au.
Passengers on some international flights, Qantas will be able to participate in the trial program facial recognition system (“recognition system of persons”) at the international airport of Sydney from 5 July. New biometric technology allows us to pass some of the checkpoints without a passport and boarding pass, automatically scanning the faces of travelers.
Sydney airport CEO Jeff Culbert said that this innovation will make inspection procedures easier and faster.
“In the future we won’t have to juggle passports and bags at check-in or to dig in the pockets and the smartphone to show your boarding pass”, — he said.
