Delta Air Lines announced that it expanded its biometric check-in functionality at Washington Reagan National Airport to allow passengers to use their fingerprints in lieu of a using boarding pass to board a plane.

The airline had launched a pilot program at the airport in May that allowed 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.

Now, the same eligible members can use their fingerprints to board Delta planes at the airport.

The final phase of the program, which will be rolled out later this summer, will allow passengers to use their fingerprints to check bags.
