No documents, we're face recognition enabled!
All airport services, such as getting entry and boarding passes, are to be digitised. The technology will be deployed at the Bangalore and Hyderabad airports soon.
At the entrance to the Bangalore and Hyderabad airports, a large signboard is living proof of the inroads that digitisation has made into how passengers enter and check in for their flights. As part of the government's new initiative, the Digi Yatra service, travelers no longer need to carry documents to establish their identity.
In fact, you may not even need to flash a passport if the new face recognition technology becomes fully operational. Under this scheme, countries that do not require an advance visa can travel without a passport. Introduced by the Department of Aviation in 2017, the project is an attempt to attract more passengers.
It is only necessary to create a Digi Yatra IT using these tools at one time. You can then travel using this identity.
Under this scheme, all services at the airport, such as boarding passes and entrances, are to be digitised. These tools will be deployed at the Bangalore and Hyderabad airports soon. The service will also be launched at Kolkata, Varanasi, Pune and Vijayawada airports.
With the Digi Yatra IT, you can book your flight tickets, get your boarding passes, travel tickets and other services with ease.
