Manchester International Border Control implements facial recognition

27 November 2009- People landing at Manchester Airport can save time by using facial recognition systems at the airport.

These high tech systems were recently launched at Terminal 2 after a successful installation at Terminal 1 in the previous year. These facial recognition systems allow travelers with an automated secure route through the UK border.

Over 300,000 people have already used them at the airport. Any UK or EU passenger aged 18 or older who has an electronically chipped biometric passport, issued since 2006 can opt for the self service gates instead of the regular manned queuing border control.
