No passport OR boarding pass!?
Schiphol airport is planning on implementing facial recognition into its check-in procedures – meaning that people will be able to travel without a passport and a boarding pass. Great news if you’ve somehow managed to leave one at home.
Currently, they already use bio-metric scanners, which mean you only need to show your passport, but now it will be possible to get on the plane without both (as long as you remember to bring your face). You will then be tracked throughout your journey.

When will this happen?
There will first be an experiment and then it will be implemented next year. Thankfully if all goes well, this will save a LOT of time in the long run, so we won’t have to deal with those ridiculous queues in the airport at peak times.
You’ll be able to take part in the experiment soon. A few corridors will be open for this next year and you will have to register. It shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes. You can also opt to have your data deleted if it’s not for you.
Thank the lord for a shorter queue time!
