JetBlue will test facial recognition check-in this month for flights from Boston to Aruba. It’s the latest attempt by the airline industry to streamline the boarding process.

Passengers will be able to step up to a camera, and the kiosk will compare the facial scan to passport photos in the U.S. customs database to confirm the match. A screen above the camera lets passengers know when they have been cleared to board. You still need to bring your passport your passport to the airport.

Jet Blue is working with SITA, a technology company that specializes in air travel, including a robotic check-in kiosk that will autonomously rove around airports, “sensing” where it is needed.

Delta Airlines will be testing their own face scanning technology as well this summer.

Wow, I guess the Jetson’s were on to something!
