“Big Brother”: Helsinki’s airport will follow its passengers

Localization through a wifi system


This is a first of its kind in the world. At the Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Finland, a passenger localization system via wifi will be set up before the end of 2014. Improve the visitor’s experience at the airport, personalize waiting time, inform on terms of the flight… This system should revolutionize time spent at an airport, as long as the passengers’ identity stays private.

Will the airport of Helsinki-Vantaa in Finland be transformed into a Big Brother airport?

By the end of 2014, a passenger localization system via wifi will be set up.

This function will need to be activated on passengers’ phone for them to receive personalized information on their own devices: indications to avoid lines at security checkpoints, delays and boarding times, and especially, discount coupons to the 35 stores and 32 restaurants…

“The most important aspect is improving the experience and satisfaction of clients, as well as the circulation flux in the airport”, explains, on Euronews, Heikki Koski, deputy director of Finavia, the company developing the system.

The challenge of such a technological advancement will be maintaining the security of travelers’ data. Many fear the idea of being watched during all of their travels.

The airport assures that no data will be conserved. Yet, Finnish authorities have imposed that a warning message must be displayed when the traveler connects to the airport’s network.

For this system to show no threat to privacy, users’ anonymity will need to be guaranteed.
