Delta Air Lines introduced a pilot program to test the use of biometric boarding passes at Washington Reagan National Airport.

The pilot will be conducted in phases. The first phase will allow eligible members of Delta’s SkyMiles loyalty program to use fingerprints to gain entry to the Delta Sky Club instead of using a boarding pass, passport, or driver’s license.

The second phase will allow passengers to use their fingerprints instead of a boarding pass to check a bag and board a flight.

Delta SkyMile members who are also enrolled in Clear, are eligible for biometric scanning.
