New service at BER – facial recognition replaces boarding pass
Berlin Brandenburg Airport is introducing BER Traveller – a digital service for biometric access control. Effective immediately, Lufthansa Group Airlines Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings’ HON Circle Members and Senators can enjoy the new service at BER. They previously had to show their boarding pass to get to the security control’s priority lane. This is now no longer necessary. Convenient and easy, these passengers now have fast access to the priority security control via a separate lane using facial recognition. The only requirement is a one-time registration of their biometric data in the service provider’s app, FastID. Passengers will receive an invitation via email from their airline.
