The Star Alliance's biometric passenger control was put into operation at Munich Airport on Tuesday. This is intended to enable travelers to enter the security area and the aircraft without presenting their boarding pass. For the time being, participation is reserved for members of the Miles & More frequent flyer program.
Test operations are currently underway in Munich at Gates G28 and G30 as well as at the security checkpoints. Cameras identify registered passengers through their faces. The MNS mask does not have to be removed.
The system, which will initially be used exclusively at Munich and Frankfurt airports, can be used on Lufthansa and Swiss flights. Miles & More members have been able to register for this in the Lufthansa and Star Alliance app for a week. Over 1.000 registrations have already been made.
