Atlanta opens first fully biometric US airport terminal
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:47:18 AM »

What if you could simply look at a screen for 2 seconds and check in for your flight?
Imagine glancing at a screen for another 2 seconds to drop off your bags at a luggage station? How easy would it be to merely look at another screen to breeze through ID checks at TSA security checkpoints or the departure gate?all thiis, without having to use your passport.
Well, now you can.
Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport and Delta Air Lines have opened the nation's first curb-to-gate biometric terminal, which promises to improve aviation security while moving travelers faster.  "Atlanta airport -- the busiest airport in the world, our largest hub -- is the first airport in the US to roll this out," Delta Chief Operating Officer Gil West told CNN at the terminal's opening on November 29. "It saves nine minutes on the ground for the boarding process which is time that our customers won't be spending in lines waiting to board the aircraft."
