Eurostar passengers will be able to check in and board without showing passports after the introduction of facial recognition technology.

Contactless boarding will be introduced by the cross-Channel train operator next year and will mark the first time that the particular biometric technology involved has been used.

The government-backed system will scan a passenger’s face on arrival at St Pancras, the company’s London terminus, and match it to an image already uploaded from a smartphone. It will allow them to pass through ticket checks and passport control without producing physical documentation.
