Your Fingerprint As Your Boarding Pass

Delta Air Lines is testing a new system that will let some passengers board its planes with just their fingertips.  Launched in May at the Reagan Washington Delta Sky Club, the program now fully integrated into Delta’s boarding process.  Members of Delta’s SkyMiles loyalty program who are enrolled in the private verified-traveler service Clear, will be able to board flights at Reagan Washington National Airport in D.C. by scanning their fingerprint.

According to senior executive vice president and chief operating officer Gil West, if all goes well with the testing, a boarding pass-free future isn’t far off.
