Delta to launch first biometric terminal in the U.S.


Delta Air Lines, in partnership with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is launching the first biometric terminal in the United States at Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal (Terminal F) in Atlanta.

Beginning late this year, Delta Biometrics will support facial recognition technology available to:

o   Check in at the self-service kiosks in the lobby

o   Drop checked baggage at the counters in the lobby

o   Serve as identification at the TSA checkpoint

o   Board a flight at any gate in Terminal F

o   And, go through CBP processing for international travelers arriving into the U.S.

CTM will keep you posted when this solution is officially available.
