Biometric Security for Flight Crews

"The system, called CrewPASS (short for Crew Personnel Advanced Screening System), allows flight crew members who opt into the program to move quickly through security checkpoints by checking biometric credentials, an airline-issued ID, and another form of identification against a database of airline employees that includes pictures of employees for further verification."
