From January 1st airlines to start conducting identity checks at boarding gatesMonday, 01 January 2018 13:56
Kim Daenen, Communications Manager and Spokesperson of Brussels Airlines, says, “This is a visual check.” She goes on, “We will check if the surname on the identity card is identical to that printed on the boarding card. This check will be effected at the boarding gate for each flight both from and to Belgium.”
This new measure falls within the context of the PNR measures (Passenger Name Record), which anticipates that airlines will send passenger data to the crisis centre 48 hours before the flight, and a second time upon the flight landing. Brussels Airlines will send this data, effective from January 1st. Strictly speaking, other Belgian airlines will be implementing the measure at a later date.
