Gatwick first trialled facial-recognition-based checks at some of its departure gates last year
Gatwick has become the UK’s first airport to confirm it will use facial-recognition cameras on a permanent basis for ID checks before passengers board planes.
It follows a self-boarding trial carried out in partnership with EasyJet last year.
The London airport said the technology should reduce queuing times but travellers would still need to carry passports.
Privacy campaigners are concerned.
