Love to travel but hate airports? If yes, then you're like most people. The word "airport" just conjures up so many negative emotions — lines, delays, unhealthy food, and overpriced merchandise. But it doesn't have to be this way. Airports should be a fun part of the travel journey, not a necessary evil — especially since people often spend just as much time in airports as they do on the plane itself.

Government Technology
In the U.S., the Transportation Security Administration uses biometrics in two primary ways: to control employees' access to secure areas, and to verify the identities of passengers enrolled in PreCheck, the administration's program for low-risk travelers, allowing them faster screening. But in various airports around the world, biometrics is being used in another capacity: to verify fliers' identities by scanning their faces, irises or fingerprints.
