Delta soon will use international face recognition at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta later this year. Biometric face scan is optional as it saves traveler's registration time. TechCrunch.
Those who do not want to scan the face can always opt out, but options are only offered to US citizens. Visitors need to scan as security measures. Data is collected and kept for two weeks, but the output record lasts more than 10 years for citizens and green card holders, more than 70 years for visitors.
Delta expansion is the latest in the widespread deployment of security systems enhanced by face recognition at the airport of the United States. In August it helped authorities capture the camera for the first time at the airport near Washington DC. Currently, 14 airports detect people arriving in the US using face recognition technology as fake documents. DC's Dulles Airport has been testing the face recognition system since 2015. JFK Airport began testing this technology in 2016. Both are part of the biometric exit pilot project that identifies visa holders.
Customs and border protection authorities continue to decide whether or not travelers can verify their identity using biometrics instead of presenting a boarding pass or identity card.
