DSC_4940Delta Air Lines announced that it will introduce four self-service bag drop kiosks at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this summer.

One of the self-service machines will be equipped with facial recognition technology that will match passengers with their passport photos. The machine will be part of a trial run the airline will conduct on the facial recognition technology.

The machines are a $600,000 investment on Delta’s part.

Delta plans to collect passenger feedback and proceed from there. The airline said that studies show that that self-service bag drop kiosks could potentially process up to twice as many passengers per hour as the current method.

The facial recognition technology-equipped bag drop kiosk will be the first in the United States.
