Tony Fernandes proved that building a budget airliner from the very beginning isn't easy unless you adopt technology and smart pricing bidding towards the organization.

"Airports are typically the worst part of flying. FACES marks our latest effort to make the on-ground experience more seamless and less stressful by using cutting edge biometric technology to authenticate guests. With FACES, your face is your passport making it breeze to clear the gate and board your flight."  - Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia

AirAsia further stated that the guests who wish to be part of FACES may do so using a dedicated enrolment kiosk located at check-in kiosk area at Senai International Airport. By using the MyKad or the chip-enabled passport in the document reader and by looking at the camera, passengers can get the biometric token. Also to mention this service available only for the passengers above 18 years old. This token is a one time use token and people can update on the expiry of the existing valid documents.
