Lufthansa Airlines and Siemens started to test biometric check-in at Frankfurt airport.
At check-in passengers get their finger-print scanned and stored. Upon boarding the plane, the finger-print is verified.
The Finger-Print Check-In should already be launched in 2006.
More details on the Berliner Tagesspiegel (German). Forbes picked up the story and has it in English.
Fingerprint biometric access becomes more and more common. To get a DVD rented from the DVD vending machine around the corner, I have to verify my finger print for age verification purposes in Germany.
