Passengers' photographed faces are checked against the image held in the biometric chip of their e-passport, or against an airline's passenger manifest and they then can travel through the airport without the need for manual identity checks.
 
The data stored at check-in also can be used to verify identities automatically as travellers pass camera stations at bag check, security and the boarding gate. 
Biometrics can also be used for access to airport lounges and duty-free purchases.
