Southeast Airlines said it plans to install digital video cameras throughout the cabins of its planes to record the faces and activities of its passengers at all times, as a precaution against terrorism and other safety threats.



In addition, the charter airline, based in Largo, Florida, will store the digitized video for up to 10 years. And it may use face recognition software to match faces to names and personal records, the airline said.



The Federal Aviation Administration and the newly created Homeland Security Department do not require airlines to take such security measures. But Southeast said it’s just a matter of time before they do, and it will be prepared.
