Sweden: airline offers fingerprint check-In for domestic flights

No ID? No problem. In Sweden, all the identification you need to board an airplane is now at your fingertips—literally. Scandinavian Airlines Sweden (SAS) now allows travelers with luggage to board domestic flights by providing a scan of their index fingerprint.The system is designed to address a European Union aviation security regulation requiring passengers who check baggage for a flight to be matched with their bags again when they board the plane. Passengers who opt to use the new biometric check-in system will scan their index finger as they drop off their baggage, and again at the gate. The two fingerprints are compared to confirm a passenger’s identity, and no other ID is required.Source: eTurboNews; read full article here.
