If the computer confirm their identity, they will be allowed to board without showing any documentation. Customers can opt out of using the facial recognition system and scan their boarding passes as usual. “Self-boarding eliminates boarding pass scanning and manual passport checks. Just look into the camera and you’re on your way,” said to media Joanna Geraghty, JetBlue executive vice president customer experience. However, passengers will still be required to show their passport and boarding pass at security prior to the gate. Facial recognition is a computer application capable of identifying or verifying a person and one of the ways to do this to compare facial features from the image and a face database. Used on airports this also build a database with the actual facial aspect of the persons onboard of an aircraft, which can be used if needed for security purposes.
