Plans to fingerprint passengers at Heathrow's new Terminal 5 are being probed by the data protection watchdog.
The Information Commissioner's Office warned airport operator BAA it may be in breach of the Data Protection Act.

Under the plans, prints will be checked at the gate to try to ensure the person who checked in is the same as the person who is boarding the aircraft.

BAA said the data was encrypted straight away and destroyed within 24 hours, in line with the act.

The investigation would not delay the opening for business of the £4.3bn terminal on Thursday, the airport operator added.

Prosecution possibility

The move will allow domestic and international passengers to mingle in the terminal's departure lounge.

The idea behind the fingerprinting is to make it impossible for a terrorist to arrive at Heathrow on a transit flight, then exchange boarding passes with a colleague in the departure lounge and join a domestic flight to enter the UK without being checked by immigration authorities.

But Deputy Information Commissioner David Smith told the Mail on Sunday: "We want to know why Heathrow needs to fingerprint passengers at all.

What on earth were they thinking? I know that transiting is important at LHR, but that's why domestic flights either arrive/depart from a different terminal or a different area of the terminal with immigration controls.

Exactly the point, its all about making money, pure and simple, can't have security if you are not making money? Governments need to take a page out of this book, if every govt. service / function was privatized, we would all get better service and probably pay less taxes. Don't laugh, its where we are heading, and right fast too.

All this really does is make it easier for illegal immigration and "bad guy" movements within the UK. I don't understand how having a domestic terminal or a domestic section of the main terminal, where you go through immigration control, cuts down on shopping. Just put shopping malls in both places...

As far as I know domestic flights are only intended to operate from the northern stands, 501-507ish and arriving passengers will use the first few reclaim belts which are seperated from the other ones in the reclaim hall.

Having separate areas mean a loss of flexibility. I don't see the problem of it being mixed, as long as measures are taken, such as fingerprinting to mean that passengers don't go where they shouldn't.

They tried fingerprinting at Disneyworld to make sure the person holding the ticket was the same who bought it (and they kept this information for a long time, BTW) but it has been a major mess, and you can visit on days where the entire system is completely broken. And Disney is a for profit company who was doing this solely to increase profits to prevent sharing of "non-expiring" tickets. And here you'd expect Disney to want to get as many people inside as possible to buy overpriced food and souvenirs.

So what happens at the T5 when this system breaks down?

That's the main point.....flexibility. Having one departures area in T5 (and soon T1) gives the airlines the advantage of being able to use most gates for both international and domestic flights. This is already in place at LGW and MAN. The current problem at T1 is that if an aircraft arrives on the domestic pier, then the jetways can't be used for the arrival. If that aircraft is then going back on an international service, again the jetways can't be used. T5 allows more flexibility in that sense.

From a BAA/retail perspective, it does mean that they don't need to duplicate shops in different areas and also means that the outlets can save on staff costs, as they now only have to maintain one outlet and not 2.

Would be really interested in how many "locals" will be buying products at the inflated airport prices, unless someone is suggesting that airport prices will now come down to match what the locals can get in their local stores.

If this is about aircraft stands, using gates for international and domestic flights can be accomplished much easier than by mingling both types of pax. Signage at LHR is not the best in my personal opinion, and I'm a native english speaker, the number of pax heading to domestic versus international belts unless seperations are involved will happen and be a major inconvenience for the authorities who have to sort it out.

Will be interesting watching this in play at a major airport such as LHR, size and traffic sometimes has its own unique problems.

I suggest you read my post again and see that I was merely pointing out to those that weren't aware, that having a common departures lounge was already in place at some airports and in no way suggested that it was a problem or as you put it 'unappealing'.

Quoting Bongodog1964 (Reply 9):

Transfer passengers are indeed screened and this is one method that is used to identify those who are going onto a domestic flight. They have to clear UK immigration and for that reason passengers going onto a domestic flight go through a different channel in the connections area than those going on an international flight. When they reach the departures area is when they mix.

This discussion is about the departures lounge and as such, there is no inconvenience or confusion as to which baggage belts are domestic or international as the arrivals process is completely different.

As for signage, the biggest issue I have found, not only at LHR, but many other airports is that people tend not to read them. You can say that perhaps there isn't enough, but when you have people read a sign that indicates toilets or gates, and then turn around and ask where the toilets or gates are, then it is down to the individual.

Can you confirm this? I was aware that Domestic & International departure passenges would mix, but mix with arriving passengers too!! I would have thought International arrival passengers would be kept seperate until they had cleared Immigration/customs before being allowed to transfer to a domestic flight.

BAA said the Border and Immigration Agency had been keen on a "reliable biometric element" when plans had been announced for common departure lounges for international and domestic flights.

Fingerprinting was selected as the most robust method by BAA, the BIA and other government departments, it said.....

The Home Office said BAA was not required to involve fingerprinting in its security arrangements at Terminal 5.


In the article extract above, I also like the way the BAA tries to shift the blame on the fingerprinting as an Immigration requirement, only for the Home Office to state it isn't it's a BAA one.

I'm not, the article is.

Despite the explanation above, the missing information is that, yes, everyone is SCREENED, but TRANSITING pax don't have to have visas for the UK. But if they can thwart the process and get onto a domestic flight via taking another's ticket, they are now in the UK on the domestic side without clearing immigration.

All it would take is for a UK resident to buy a domestic ticket, check-in, enter security, give their ticket to someone who's on a transit ticket, then just leave the terminal. How they are trying to prevent this is via fingerprint matching, a system that is going to be prone to failure at times.

This will mean that domestic flights leaving from T5 will be delayed and cause inconvenience to every pax, and UK residents will be required to constantly give up their fingerprints just to fly, something even the "crazy" USA does not require for domestic travel.

All for the convenience of the BAA.

Now, in the USA we combine domestic and international all the time, but we do it by not permitting transit without visa, which pisses off a lot of people who want to fly through the USA to connect only.

I hope the LHR system works. But to me, having seen this thing fail in practice (especially as the equipment ages), I am not so sure it will work...

I would have thought International arrival passengers would be kept seperate until they had cleared Immigration/customs before being allowed to transfer to a domestic flight.

Arriving passengers are entirely separate, until the arriving and then onward-connecting passenger passes through security search and is finger-printed. They then enter the common-user departure lounge. This enables domestic passengers to use the same facilities, such as restaurants and lounges, as everybody else. This issue was driven by BA's domestic frequent flyers, who were pretty pissed-off with the poor facilities at Terminal 1's gate 5, used for UK domestics.

AFAIK, this process has been in place since Feb 2008 in Terminal 1, for UK domestic departures on BA. Whilst fingerprints aren't necessary and a photo would do, a fingerprint is more reliable, rather than relying upon an airline staff member to look at a digital picture of the person in front of them and state for sure that it's the same person.
