Delta to test face scanning kiosks for checking baggage
Delta will test a face scanning kiosk for baggage check at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this summer, according to CNN.
The machine uses facial recognition technology to match a passenger’s identity to their passport photos. The passenger tags their own bags, pays the fee and drops their luggage on the conveyor belt.
Passengers without passports still require a Delta agent to confirm their identities.
The company invested $600,000 in the four kiosks it plans to test.
The company expects kiosks to move twice the number of passengers per hour through check-in.
