As mentioned, this first phase is expected to be completed in the first half of the year. This will equip the 50 check-in kiosks, 20 check-in counters and 56 eGates of both KLIA Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 with the facial recognition tech. Passengers will also be able to use the MYairports app to register your face before they even arrive at the airport.
Overall, the convenience of this sounds really great. But at the same time, the use of facial recognition can be a controversial one with privacy concerns.
