CBP Deploys Biometric Exit Technology to Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport

CBP Deploys Biometric Exit Technology to Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced on August 8, 2017 the deployment of facial recognition biometric exit technology to McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas for one daily flight from the United States to Guadalajara, Mexico. Using the flight manifest, CBP builds a flight specific photo gallery using photographs from the travel document the traveler provided to the airline. Delta and JetBlue recently announced collaborations with CBP to integrate facial recognition technology as part of the boarding process. There are several legislative mandates that direct the Department of Homeland Security to record the arrival and departure of non-U.S. citizens by collecting biometrics. CBP first established biometric screening procedures based on digital fingerprints for certain non-U.S. citizens in 2004 to secure our borders and ensure that the foreign travelers presenting themselves for admission to the United States are who they claim to be.
