Facial recognition is now a reality at Madrid airport

Iberia presenta el embarque biométrico en el aeropuerto de Madrid

Iberia has just launched the pilot of a facial recognition project at Madrid’s Terminal 4, along with Aena, IECISA, Gunnebo and Thales. The objective is to improve the customer experience at the airport, as it allows passengers to identify themselves at the general and fast-track security checkpoints and boarding gates with their biometric profiles, meaning there’s no need to show their documents. The system will be tested for a period of six months to a year and will be available to passengers flying to Asturias or Brussels with Iberia.
