(CNN) - Delta is testing a face-scanning kiosks to check your bags for your flight.

The system uses facial recognition technology to match your identity to your passport photo.

Travelers tag their own bags, pay the fee and drop their luggage on a conveyor belt.


Passengers without passports would still be able to check their own bags, but would need an agent to confirm their identities.

Delta said the kiosks could allow them to check-in twice as many passengers per hour.

The airline says the scanned images will not be stored and the system complies with all privacy laws.

Delta is testing four of the machines this summer at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.
