The airline's program will require only a quick photo match to board your flight

JetBlue announced that it will be testing a new boarding process this month involving biometrics and facial recognition technology. Collaborating with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and SITA, JetBlue will offer a paperless and device-free self-boarding process on flights from Boston’s Logan International Airport to Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport.

Passengers will be able to participate without any prior registration. They simply step up to a camera, which connects to CBP’s database to match their image to passport, visa or immigration photo and verify their flight details. JetBlue staff will be on hand to assist passengers throughout the process.
