This article explores the benefits of introducing biometric systems in airports. Brazilian government initiative, The Safer Boarding Project, aims to introduce biometrics for identity verification, passport control, boarding, and accessing the lounge. Currently, these processes require the review of several physical documents where human related errors may occur.
While improving safety and efficiency, it can also benefit the airlines themselves, who have suffered greatly during the pandemic. The enhancement of traveler experience can decrease unnecessary costs and increase future revenue. The project is adherent to the National Law of Protection of Personal Data to ensure privacy.
