Boarding Passes Will No Longer Be Needed For Airport Security

Airport Security

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pretty soon passengers flying out of Pittsburgh International won't need a boarding pass to get through security.

The Tribune Review reports several airports are phasing out boarding passes by using screening machines that can verify identities using only a license or passport.

Credential Authentication Technology,or CAT cross-references scanned ID cards with passenger itineraries and TSA's database.

 One is already set up in Pittsburgh, with more being installed in the coming weeks.

 TSA hopes the tech makes security screening more efficient and accurate.
