Interesting news from the Netherlands and Canada as they will be doing a test run on “passport-free travel” from the Netherlands to Canada and back on KLM and Air Canada flights.

Both countries seek to make this permanent in 2020, it is the very first passport-free pilot in intercontinental aviation.

The Dutch Justice department confirmed that the trial run will start soon and that “passengers load their passport at home on an app in their smartphone, after which all their data at the airport is scanned via GPS as they pass by monitoring equipment.”

The faces of passangers will be scanned in advance and will be linked to the passport data obtained via GPS, airport security checks on departure or arrival will also no longer be necessary.
