At the airport

At the Milan Linate airport, the innovative Face Boarding face recognition system is now operational, developed by SEA Milan Aiports in order to quickly pass through security checks and boarding procedures, without having to show your documents or boarding pass.

The Face Boarding service is offered exclusively to ITA Airways passengers departing from Milan Linate to Rome Fiumicino.

Using the service is easy.

Make your first-time registration at the Face Boarding kiosk at check-in isles 1 or 6 by sequentially scanning one of your documents (passport or electronic ID), the boarding pass and then your face. Then you can continue your journey through the airport without having to show your personal and travel documents. In fact, thanks to biometric recognition, you will be able to quickly access security gates and boarding gates through priority lanes.

Also use the dedicated Face Boarding app to associate your boarding pass with your document for your next trip directly from your home. You can use the App only after you have registered at one of the airport kiosks.

The service is active on experimental basis until 31 August 2022; for more information click here.
