Touchless ID

Admirals Club entry with touchless ID

All you need is a smile

Save time and enter the Admirals Club® without handing over your boarding pass or ID. Our new touchless ID program scans your face and matches it against your enrolled ID photo in the Airside: Digital Identity app.


  • Fly out of Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)
  • Have a U.S. passport or driver’s license*
  • Have an Admirals Club® membership
  • Use the Airside: Digital Identity app

*Driver’s license source data verification may go down or may not be supported for all states. If that's the case, you can enroll using your passport or try again later.

How it works

Before you go

Open the Airside: Digital Identity app. Then you'll:

  • Choose 'American Airlines touchless ID' in Services
  • Create your touchless ID by enrolling your U.S. passport or driver's license and adding a photo of yourself in the app
  • Add your AAdvantage® number when you consent for your touchless ID to be shared and used on day of travel.

Your touchless ID is stored in the Cloud as an encrypted token for 48 hours during travel. You can revoke consent in the app at any time. No information from your mobile ID is stored on the cloud beyond the consent expiration date.

At the airport

When you arrive at the Admirals Club® lounge, look for the tablet to take your picture and match it against the photo (touchless ID) you shared from your device.
