At Milan airport you can now fly without documents, just show your face

While your grandfather still goes to the airport with a paper ticket and you feel smarter with a smartphone ticket, the world is moving on. There is actually a new way to show the travel ticket, and that is by face. After months of experimentation, "FaceBoarding" is active at Linate airport and will allow travelers who wish to enter the check-in and gate area simply by showing their face to the biometric facial recognition system.

"This technology uses biometrics to replace the traditional boarding pass and ID card when going through security checks and gate entry. The main goal is twofold: to improve the overall security of the process and provide a smoother and more seamless experience comfortable for passengers," stated the General Director of the Airport, Armando Brunini.

This technology was already active in several airports in the United States, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong, but Linate is the first airport in Europe to use "Faceboarding."
