Hi-tech eye scanners that track passengers as they walk through airport go on trial in UK

Passengers will have their eyes scanned as soon as they check in as part of a new trial a major UK airport.

High-tech machines that can recognise an individual’s iris as they walk around will be installed at Manchester Airport at check in during the government-backed pilot.

The technology has the potential to overhaul security and customs, with airport bosses hoping it could help in the fight against terrorism.

Passengers who agree to take part will have their iris scanned at check in and it will then be used to identify them as they enter the security search area when it is scanned again.

Although the system is in the early stages of development, officials hope it could stop criminals from swapping boarding cards between arriving at the airport and getting on a plane – as the technology will scan the person, not the ticket.
