Forget boarding pass and documents always at hand: from the end of November, on an experimental basis on the Rome-Amsterdam flights of the KLM company, passengers will be able to check-in at a special desk in Terminal 1 of Fiumicino airport using facial recognition, with a system similar to that used to unlock phones and computers through fingerprints.
Just swipe your passport using the optical reader and stop by the camera that will frame you comparing travel documents and flight booking data. From that moment, thanks to biometrics, your face will be your pass for all the following steps, for baggage inspections, at the border post or the boarding gate. After about an hour all the data will be deleted.
Moreover, between February and March new sophisticated hand baggage control systems will be used to detect even small quantities of explosives, signaling anomalies to the operator. During the baggage controls, all the liquids can be left in the suitcase, from the foam bath to the perfumes and shampoo, not to mention tablets and notebooks.
It is another step forward for the Roman airport, which in 2019 obtained the leadership position in the official ranking of “Airport Council International” for the second consecutive year, based on the quality of the services offered, technological innovation and infrastructure functionality.
