American Airlines began using biometric boarding for customers departing from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) with the launch of the biometric boarding programme at its largest hub.

New technology offers customers additional convenience and security during boarding at American’s largest hub
American customers travelling on select international departures from DFW Terminal D can now enjoy additional convenience during the departure process. Instead of scanning boarding passes, the new one-step facial recognition program will scan and verify a customer’s identity with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in seconds at the gate. With this new process, no customer biometrics will ever be stored.

As the largest carrier at DFW, American Airlines offers 91 daily international departures to 63 destinations worldwide. The airline plans to expand biometric boarding to nearly 75 international gates throughout Terminals A, B, C and D by the end of this year.
