Biometrics usage is still in its early stages in the industry. However, a few airlines have begun to invest in fingerprint and facial recognition technology. The technology is currently being tested in areas such as check-in, security, lounge access, and boarding.

Long lines at the security checkpoint or at the baggage carousel continue to be a major source of frustration for passengers. Furthermore, having to show their passports, identity cards, or flight permits for verification adds to their annoyance. Airlines are progressively experimenting with biometrics to address these difficulties and make passengers’ journeys as smooth as possible.

Paper and mobile boarding cards will become obsolete in the long run as airlines adopt facial, iris, or fingerprint scans to identify passengers. A European airline has already used facial-recognition technology to speed up check-in and boarding. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States has announced a pilot program in 30 domestic airports to use passengers’ fingerprints for identification and boarding permit issuance.

The new systems are part of an effort to combat illicit migration from West Africa to the European Union.

African airline is gaining on making the new biometrics their first priority to reduce the unmanaged criminal regulations that come with faking documentation. This will create better foams of travel in Africa and more importantly cater for the local human errors like forgetting, disorganization.

If airlines handle the privacy problems associated with data, biometrics will provide numerous benefits, including shorter wait times for passengers.

The “image” designed by the brain’s mechanisms when reading is truly vivid and empowering. So writing for that vision is truly an enormous representation of art. Aviation is truly a limitless wave of adventure and exploration and you will find the right “image” in my writing.
