IATA has emphasized that airlines should not be expected to foot the bill for increased security measures in the United States.

A new proposal would see facial recognition biometrics recorded when passengers leave the country by air.

IATA and Airlines for America met with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to discuss the proposed measures.

Member airlines who participated in a pilot of the program reported that the technology will not significantly disrupt operations, but IATA is strongly opposed to any suggestion airlines should fund this national security program.
