Good news for flight passengers that if you are flying from Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad airport towards anywhere in India, you will no longer need boarding passes as biometric-based boarding system soon be introduced by the civil aviation authorities.
As per reports, the biometric-based boarding system uses facial recognition technology for id proof, for which, trials have already started to make boarding completely paperless. It will take hardly two minutes to register for smooth access and then passengers can go to the boarding gate straightaway.
Recently, Vistara is experimenting this biometric trial for the next two to three months and passengers can participate in it by registering at their kiosk in Delhi airport’s Terminal 3.
Paper tags for hand luggage, paper boarding passes and other paper documents will not be necessary once this new technology is implemented. This initiative will be a part of civil aviation ministry’s DigiYatra policy. Biometric facial recognition technology at the airports, will also result in faster processing and reduced waiting time in queues.
As per news,under civil aviation ministry’s DigiYatra project, air passengers can make a new DigiYatra id by providing Voter id, Driving license, Aadhaar or Passport. The DigiYatra id and ticket PNR will be used to check the passenger’s identity.
Your boarding process will become easier and you need not to show boarding pass or ID cards at multiple checkpoints at the airport. The new biometric system, voluntary in nature,will help air passengers avoid long queues at the security and baggage checks and boarding gates.
