' Big Brother ' system in the Helsinki airport

Still at an early stage, the system must be running at 100 percent by the end of the year.

"Our goal is to make passengers ' lives easier and more enjoyable when they meet at the airport" refers to Heikki Koski, head of Finavia.

Traders were also not forgotten. Thanks to an application users can receive offers and promotions from more than 60 existing shops and dining outlets at the airport.

"I think it can help me to know, for example, when I should apply to the terminal, but I can live without advertising" says a passenger.

Critics point to the drawbacks.

"If users are not identified by the system there is no problem, but if they are identified at the airport I think may constitute a threat to privacy" sustains Ville Oksanen, Aalto University researcher.

At Helsinki airport pass every year 15 million passengers. To circumvent this kind of Big Brother it is necessary to disable the phone's Wi-fi service.
