Star Alliance Biometrics

Star Alliance’s biometric face field recognition allows you to make your way through security and boarding quickly and with almost no contact. In the future, all it will take is a single glance from you – without a boarding pass or smartphone. As a Miles & More member on a Lufthansa, SWISS or Austrian flight, you can benefit exclusively from this offer at Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna airports.

This is how to register with Star Alliance Biometrics

Registration only takes a few minutes and must be completed at least 24 hours before departure. For this, you will need your valid passport and the latest version of the Miles & More app.
