(WTNH) — The airline boarding pass could become a thing of the past.

JetBlue will start testing a facial recognition check-in program next month.

Passengers will step up to a camera where a kiosk will compare that facial scan to the person’s passport photo.

If a match is made, the passenger will be allowed to board the plane.

The facial recognition check-in program will be tested on flights from Boston to Aruba.
