Dulles Airport Surprises Passengers with Facial-Recognition Boarding

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 10, 2018

99 percent accurate during testing – Sure..and the F-35 works great too.

When testing is complete, the process will be updated so photos are deleted immediately after the comparison – Just like the TSA porno scans

It doesn’t matter,” Maryland resident Kim Meekins…“That would be awesome,” she said. “It would be wonderful.”

Thea Ottersen of Norway…so I don’t really mind

Lithuanian traveler Mantas Klimasausas said…“I think it’s a new approach,” he said. And if it expedites boarding, “That’s even better.”

Norway, Lithuania, Maryland – all socialist loving. Apparently this government rag cheery picked the sheeple. There appears to be quite a few at Dulles…assuming they aren’t fake.

Some international travelers can leave their boarding passes and passports in their pockets when flying out of Dulles International Airport thanks to a new facial recognition boarding technology that went into operation Thursday…

The scan takes fractions of a second and has shown to be 99 percent accurate during testing, according to CBP Commissioner John McAleenan, who was joined by MWAA President Jack Potter and airline representatives for an unveiling event Thursday…

CBP had been keeping the photos for up to 14 days during testing, and will continue to keep them for up to 12 hours for the short term, said John Wagner, CBP deputy assistant commissioner for the Office of Field Operations. When testing is complete, the process will be updated so photos are deleted immediately after the comparison, he said.

Officials touted the additional security the system provides—meeting a Congressional mandate to include biometric screenings—as well as the benefits to travelers, who can expect a much faster boarding process…

“It doesn’t matter,” Maryland resident Kim Meekins said of not being informed ahead of time. “You go to different airports and they do different things depending on their technology. If it’s another safety measure to make sure everyone has a safe flight, I’m all for whatever. I didn’t need to be notified ahead of time.”

Meekins said she is a frequent flyer, so the idea of cutting boarding time in half was enticing.

“That would be awesome,” she said. “It would be wonderful.”

For Thea Ottersen of Norway, privacy was not a major concern, as the general procedure doesn’t differ much from what she has come to expect from American airport security…

Lithuanian traveler Mantas Klimasausas said he didn’t have strong feelings about the program either way, adding that he’ll wait to see how the technology develops over time. However, when told the process could cut boarding time in half, he quickly became a convert.

“I think it’s a new approach,” he said. And if it expedites boarding, “That’s even better.”…

Be seeing you

sheeple
