Finavia to develop trial biometric identification system along northern airport route by 2019

    Finavia head of digitalisation operations Matti Lehto reported (12-Jun-2018) the company plans to develop biometric identification systems with a trial connection on northern airport routes by 2019. Mr Lehto said routes from Helsinki to OuluTurku or Tampere-Pirkkala “would be most suitable” for the pilot project, as these more often handle frequent business travellers who are used to using technology day-to-day. Mr Lehto said airport digital solutions enable airport staff to improve workflow and customer service in general, due to time being saved in automation processes. [more – original PR]
