Airport check-ins based on your iris
Up to 2,000 North American citizens - customers of Virgin Atlantic and British Airways who travel frequently to the United Kingdom - will be able to enroll in the trial.
The so-called "one-stop" identification process uses iris-recognition technology to identify passengers at all steps in the travel process. Powerful software translates the iris pattern into a frequent-flier number or passport number, and then communicates this with airport and airline computers to simplify check-in, baggage check, boarding and passport control.
