The government of Riyadh has announced that biometric face-scanners will replace boarding passes for all airport travellers from within the capital.

Instead of using a printed or digital boarding pass, passengers at King Khalid International Airport will simply look at a screen to pass through, cutting down check-in times drastically. This paves the way for a new era of seamless travel from the city while introducing a new element of security to the process, thanks to a partnership between the aviation company and global technology provider, SITA.
