Federal Government of Brazil Trials Fully Digital, Face-Based Boarding Program at Santos Dumont Airport

To exploit the new service, passengers will initially have to stop for a photograph when they check-in at the air terminal. That photograph will at that point be contrasted with a picture in a government database, permitting the air terminal to interface the individual's face to their Brazilian CPF number and their travel documents. From that point forward, they will at this point don't have to introduce those documents (either their identification or their boarding pass) as they travel through the air terminal. They can rather enter lounges and get onto their plane with just a facial recognition filter.

The opt-in biometric boarding program requires the assent of the traveler, and will at first just be offered to clients flying with Azul airlines. Be that as it may, the technology will be introduced at different air terminals expecting all works out positively. The Santos Dumont organization comes in the wake of an earlier paperless boarding pilot at the Florianópolis and Salvador airports in 2020.

The facial recognition terminals being utilized in the trial feature technology from IDEMIA, Digicon, and Azul/Pacer. The Federal Government is trusting that the Embarque + Seguro program will empower a contactless travel insight during the COVID-19 pandemic, and limit standby times at security checkpoints.

“With biometric boarding, travelers will be able to enjoy a more peaceful experience at the airport, while having total control of biometrics at each stage of the trip,” said IDEMIA Sales Director Márcio Lambert. “Our solutions adopt simple, secure and economical approaches, without ever putting data security at risk.”
