The airport is using facial biometric cameras that can be put near places like departure gates. The cameras verify a passenger's identity in less than two seconds, and they're 99 percent accurate.
Officials say the system will be used to process the five million international travelers that go trough the airport every year.
Officials are hoping the technology can eventually be used for domestic travelers as well.
