Sydney Airport to use face biometrics

With a flash of their face, passengers flying overseas will be able to walk through Sydney Airport’s international terminal to their waiting plane almost without showing their passport.

That is the goal of a trial of biometric testing due to start in May at Australia’s largest airport.

“Your face will be your passport and boarding pass. There will be no fumbling for passports,” Sydney Airport’s new chief executive, Geoff Culbert, said.

Mr Culbert, who took the reins from long-time CEO Kerrie Mather last month, said biometric processing had the potential to revolutionise the journey for passengers through the airport. “We are not aware of this being done to this extent anywhere else in the world,” he said. SMH
