The new self-service TSA screening system will be available in January.
Las Vegas airport will test self-service screening system next year to speed up the security checkpoint process with minimal TSA officer contact.
Passengers will load bags onto conveyor belts and walk through body scanners, reducing the need for patdowns and bag inspections.
The pilot program is part of TSA's plan to implement facial recognition technology across 16 airports in the US to enhance identity verification.
