Delta Airlines Testing Facial Recognition Software
Just in time for holiday travel, the TSA and Delta Airlines are teaming up with a travel tech company called Pangiam to introduce facial recognition technology at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. TSA PreCheck passengers with the Fly Delta app won’t have to pull out a passport or drivers license when the pass through security or board the plane.
They’ll just present their “digital ID,” which includes their Delta SkyMiles member number, their passport number, and their Known Traveler number issued by TSA PreCheck. That digital ID will be attached to a scan of their faces.
