AirAsia has outdone themselves again.
From scrapping the traditional check-in system involving your boarding passes and check-in luggage, the airline company is now moving forward to a whole new level of modernisation by introducing facial recognition technology
In a recent interview with the New Straits Times
, Tony Fernandez admitted that he’d like to see “more biometric authentications” and he has “set his eyes on facial recognition technology.”
What that means is, you will soon be able to make purchases and complete check-ins with just your face. Wow, the future is really here!
Maybe we won’t have flying cars by 2020 but we’ll be able to do our daily tasks with just our faces in the near future.
The Fast Airport Clearance Experience System (FACES) is said to be launched at the Senai Airport most likely in February.
Not much details are known at the moment about the biometric technology, but we know tech geeks and aviation fans are looking forward to seeing it implemented.
To be honest, we’d be so excited too once it is launched. If only we could Insta-story the whole experience…
But we can’t help but notice that how the pictures in our passports can sometimes look very different. So, we believe it could be a very nerve-wrecking experience to try and ‘pass’ this biometric authentication.
What do you think of this digital advancement by AirAsia? Would it be creepy that AirAsia wants to scan your face in order to check-in or is it something we should adopt to have a more seamless check-in process?
