Delta Air Lines will soon use facial recognition for those traveling on flights at one of the nation’s busiest airports.
On Thursday, the airline announced it will launch its first biometric terminal at Atlanta’s International Airport next month.
Delta said the move is in partnership with the Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and is intended to streamline the pre-flight process from curb to gate.
However, the technology has drawn mixed responses with some praising it as convenient and others arguing it is an invasion of privacy.
Delta Air Lines has reassured customers it is completely optional and if customers do not want to participate, they can proceed as normal.
