Airline group wants greater use of facial recognition to help reduce delays at Paris airports

Jean-Marc Janaillac, the CEO of the Air France-KLM airline group, appealed to French authorities to allow a greater use of facial recognition technology in an effort to reduce delays for passengers caused by security checks at Paris airports, according to a Reuters report.

Janaillac says that airport delays caused by police checks, which can be more than two hours, come at a time when passenger traffic is picking up ahead of the summer holiday season, and that he has written the French interior minister urging him to take quick measures.

Janaillac also requested authorities hire more air and border police and ease on passport checks to some destinations.

The French interior ministry did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.
