Our passengers experienced a world first in Lyon!

The launch of Mona - the new travel buddy based on facial recognition


On Monday, passengers travelling to Porto with Transavia were the first to experience Mona - a world exclusive in YOUR airport !

Mona, the new mobile travel buddy based on facial recognition was officially launched on Monday 19 October in Lyon airport. Passengers travelling to Porto on a Transavia flight had the exclusive honour of testing this free new service - the only one of its kind in the world.

Gabriel, who was travelling with his family, was the very first passenger to follow Mona, a seamless voyage from planning the trip to sitting down in the aircraft. After simply creating his profile on the mobile application and scanning his boarding pass, all gates opened, without the need to show his documents. As experienced travellers, Gabriel and his family travel from Lyon to Porto often. Delighted, he told us:

With facial recognition at the airport, it has never been as quick and easy to fly. Gabriel was therefore able to benefit from step-by-step support in the airport, with real-time information on his flight and exclusive offers and services. 

For now, MONA is available for flights to Lisbon (TAP) and Porto (Transavia).
