    The TSA is testing technology that would scan airline passengers' fingerprints to determine their identity and obtain their boarding pass information.

    The agency tasked with protecting America's airports and keeping passengers safe announced in a press release Tuesday that the pilot program will be conducted at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Denver International Airport. It is open to travelers enrolled in TSA Precheck.


    The technology will allow a passenger's fingerprint to serve as both an identification method and his or her boarding pass.

    "TSA looks at technologies and intelligence capabilities that allow us to analyze and secure the travel environment, passengers, and their property," said TSA acting assistant administrator Steve Karoly of the Office of Requirements and Capabilities Analysis.

    "Through these and other technology demonstrations, we are looking to reinvent and enhance security effectiveness to meet the evolving threat and ensure that passengers get to their destinations safely."

    If the program is successful, it would potentially allow passengers to pass through security lines without a physical boarding pass.

    During the testing phase, the TSA is asking for volunteers who use Precheck to provide their fingerprints (if they've not already done so) and use a dedicated lane in the security area.


    The TSA has stepped up its screening of electronic devices at airports after intelligence was uncovered earlier this year that suggested terrorists have the ability to detonate laptop bombs midflight.

    Two U.S. Airports Test Fingerprint Scans As a Replacement for IDs

    • Airport security agency is latest to adopt a biometric system
    • PreCheck passengers can participate in Denver, Atlanta


    Airline passengers may soon be able to put away their IDs and boarding passes at screening lines as the Transportation Security Administration begins an experiment to use fingerprints to ensure people’s identities.


    Passengers who are enrolled in PreCheck, the TSA program that gives travelers expedited screening, will be able to use their fingerprints at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International and Denver International to verify their identity and to pull up their boarding pass information, the agency announced Tuesday.


    The TSA becomes the latest security agency or business to begin using automated biometric information to verify people’s identities.

    JetBlue Airways Corp., Delta Air Lines Inc. and Air France’s KLM are experimenting with fingerprint and facial-recognition technology to speed the check-in process. Alclear LLC’s Clear, a subscription service that allows faster access to airport screening and sporting events, also uses fingerprints.


    Delta announced Tuesday that is also working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Atlanta and New York’s Kennedy International to test a new biometric procedure for people leaving the country. Passengers can use facial recognition portals to verify their identity and scan their boarding passes, Delta said in a release.


    “Through these and other technology demonstrations, we are looking to reinvent and enhance security effectiveness to meet the evolving threat and ensure that passengers get to their destinations safely,” TSA Acting Assistant Administrator Steve Karoly said in a release.


    Most people enrolled in PreCheck have already provided the government with fingerprints in order to pass a background check.

    Once the system matches their prints, it will not only verify their identity but also link automatically to their boarding passes, according to TSA.


    Providing a fingerprint before going through security is voluntary, the agency said. At least initially, passengers will also be subject to the “standard ticket document checking process,” according to TSA.


    In the longer term, the technology may allow passengers to automate the document-checking process, which can save time for the traveler and reduce the need for TSA staff.
