The next time you board a Delta flight at the ATL airport, you may not even need a boarding pass.
Yep -- no carrying around that piece of paper that you print out, no fumbling with your phone to pull up your mobile boarding pass -- just to have to go to sleep as soon as you get to the front of the boarding line!
Delta Airlines has a new, exclusive partnership with TSA PreCheck to use facial recognition technology to make you airport experience from the curb to the gate even smoother!
You need a TSA PreCheck® membership and a Delta SkyMiles number -- that's it! Just opt-in when you check in for your flight, and all you'll need to do is look into a camera at the bag drop area, and your image is encrypted and sent to US Customs and Border Protection's facial biometric matching service. That matches your face to your government-issued ID, and boom -- you're off! No boarding pass or ID needed all the way to the airplane!
Participation is completely voluntary.
