New technology is trying to make getting to a flight at JFK Airport as quick as the blink of an eye -- or the tap of a finger.
Biometric scanners were introduced Monday at Terminal 4, the largest terminal at JFK. It allows people to have their finger or iris scanned, instead of using a passport.
This is part of a partnership between JFK Airport and CLEAR technology.
“I welcome this new biometric technology to JFK’s Terminal 4, which will make the travel experience smoother, safer and faster for millions of people," State Senator James Sanders Jr. said.
You have to sign up for Clear ahead of time to be able to use the scanners, but you can do that at the airport.
A similar program is already in use at LaGuardia Airport.
The Department of Homeland Security has approved the scanners.
