TSA Expands Facial Recognition to Automate Bag Drop, ID Verification, and Flight Boarding

“The TSA released its proposal to expand facial recognition on Monday. Its ‘Biometrics Roadmap for Aviation Security and the Passenger Experience’ is an effort to increase security, travel efficiency, and convenience. According to the TSA, the plan is rooted in working with the CBP agency using biometrics on international travelers; enhancing the travel experience for TSA Pre members via facial recognition; expanding biometrics to additional domestic travelers; and developing a cohesive infrastructure to actually process and support the requisite biometric technology and data. ‘With the threat to aviation evolving every day, developing the next generation of security technology with our industry partners is critically important,’ said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. ‘By expanding our use of biometrics, TSA secures its position as a global leader in aviation security and advances global transportation security standards.’ “
