Airlines at Frankfurt Airport can now use facial biometrics for identification at check-in when boarding the plane.

The German airport is the first in Europe to offer biometric touchpoints to passengers of all carriers, allowing travelers to pass through the airport more easily and limiting potential problems.

Thanks to the Sita system, the face becomes the boarding pass. Once checked in, passengers pass through checkpoints equipped with facial recognition without presenting physical documents. The new technology is already used by more than 12,000 passengers during check-in, checking boarding passes and at the gates.
