VIDEO: Air France launches Smartboarding

Air France yesterday invited Flightglobal over to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to demonstrate its automated boarding pass service called Smartboarding for its frequent Flyers who fly from Paris to Amsterdam launched today.

Passengers who register will get a card which contains information using biometric technology such as encrypted fingerprints, radio frequency identification (RFID) and thermal printing.

Here’s a video that explains how Smartboarding works.

    interesting and positive step towards quicker and more secure traveling. Your video was nice but hardly audible in open space offices . Many thanks to keep us update on this new feature to other destinations than Amsterdam. Best regards – marian

    Not sure of the benefit of system like this, if you are a frequent flyer you will want to check-in and print your boarding card BEFORE getting to the airport and just get straight to the gate. Much quicker than going through all this…
