Biometric facial recognition at Vienna Airport

Are you planning to fly off somewhere again? Then we’ve got something new for you. As a Miles & More member you will be able to go through security and boarding at Vienna Airport easily and contactlessly from 9 November 2021. How does it work?


Biometric facial recognition makes it possible. All it takes is a single glance from you - without a boarding pass or smartphone.


Smart and easy:

You must register for Star Alliance Biometrics at least 24 hours before your next Austrian, Lufthansa or SWISS flight to use this service. You will need a valid passport and the latest version of the Miles & More app to do so.


Once registered, you will be able to pass contactlessly through security at Terminal 3 at Vienna Airport, and also through boarding gates F4 and F9 during a trial period. You can also use the biometric access points at Frankfurt and Munich Airports, in addition to Vienna.
