Delta to Launch First Biometric Terminal in the U.S.
Delta and partners launching the first biometric terminal at Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal (Terminal F) in Atlanta.
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, customers flying from Atlanta to an international destination have the option of using facial recognition technology from curb to gate, transforming the customer journey with a seamless travel experience through the airport.
This optional, end-to-end Delta Biometrics experience includes using facial recognition technology to:
- Check in at the self-service kiosks in the lobby
- Drop checked baggage at the counters in the lobby
- Serve as identification at the TSA checkpoint
- Board a flight at any gate in Terminal F
- And, go through CBP processing for international travelers arriving into the U.S.
Traveling on partner airlines Aeromexico, Air France-KLM or Virgin Atlantic Airways out of Terminal F? Those customers are eligible to use this technology too — another benefit of Delta’s unmatched global network of partnerships.
