Fingerprints and iris scans are coming to O’Hare

United Airlines and Clear have an agreement together, and they are using fingerprint and/or iris scans to verify the identities of travelers at the airport. O’Hare says they plan to make an investment in Clear and begin to use their technology.

Clear still needs the City Council’s approval to set up lanes specifically for fingerprint and iris scans. Sources say it could be approved in September.

Staff says this will expedite the screening process and provide another luxury for the frequent-flyers.

That’s it guys, robots are taking over!
