no need to worry about having downloaded or printed his boarding pass. From the beginning of the year 2020, some airline passengers will no longer have to show their face at the time of check-in their luggage and boarding. The device will be tested by Airport of Paris (ADP) Orly airport in collaboration with two companies, including Air France.

The experimentation phase will take place over 18 months, under the watchful eye of the constable of privacy.

The national Commission on informatics and liberties (Cnil) will be responsible for the monitoring of the new framework of recognition, this one using an item of biometric data of the passenger, his face, in the present instance. Detail which has its importance: only those persons who have expressly consented to entrust these data to the company and the ADP group will benefit from the system ; those which have not performed the approach will continue to ship as before. The biometric devices will be in areas marked and not accessible to the travelers classic.systematic Destruction of the data after the take-off
In addition to requiring the consent of passengers, the Cnil requires that the entirety of the biometric data used is destroyed immediately after the departure of the aircraft. Because of this, they will not be able to be compared to those held by the ministry of the Interior, in contrast to what is done in the United States, for example. ADP and the companies will not be able to reuse these data known as sensitive during other flights, or for commercial purposes.
For the moment, ADP indicates that the new system of boarding will only be present on three flights. The destinations have not yet been defined, however a spokesperson for the group clarifies to The Express that they will "likely be in the european space".

The paris airports are not in their shot, with this cutting-edge technology. Paris-Orly and Roissy-Charles de Gaulle have already use facial recognition, but for the arrivals at the border. The "INITIALS" for "transition automated, fast at the external borders" are indeed in place in the two airports since the summer of 2018. Monitored by the border police, these sas are used for the automatic control of passports. Installed in order to reduce the queues, their number increased from 37 in the summer of 2018 to 102 today. With this system, the airports have set themselves the objective of reducing the waiting time to 45 minutes for international flights, and a maximum of 30 minutes for european flights. This seems to give satisfaction, since, at Orly, these new systems enable up to "300 passages per hour, compared to 150 for the older generation," says ADP.
Regarding the use of the biometrics before the take-off, the group's objective is to generalize the principle to all the steps up to the boarding by 2024.Updated Date: 08 October 2019, 00:00
