NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — JetBlue will soon begin testing facial recognition check-in.

Starting next month, the airline will use the technology for its Boston to Aruba flights.

Instead of presenting a boarding pass, a camera will compare a passenger’s facial scan to their passport photo.

A screen above the camera will let passengers know if they are cleared to board.
