Government launches DigiYatra facility at 3 airports; Data security promises



The Indian government has launched the DigiYatra facility at three airports across the country. With the new facility, passengers will now have access to seamless entry to their airport travel using facial recognition technology. From December 1, the DigiYatra facility will be available at IGI Airport in the national capital, Kempegowda International Airport in Bangalore and Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport in Varanasi. The service will soon be rolled out to a few more airports next year.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia launched DigiYatra facility at Delhi airport on December 1. As mentioned by the Minister, the new check-in facility will ensure the safety of passenger data as it will be stored in an encrypted format.

In the initial stage, the service will be rolled out to the airlines on board. Passengers traveling on domestic flights can avail this facility at Delhi, Bangalore and Varanasi airports. At the moment, only three airlines – Air India, Vistara and IndiGo – are part of DigiYatra, meanwhile SpiceJet plans to join the initiative soon.

In August this year, it was the DigiYatra program rolled to Hyderabad International Airport for a period of three months. Meanwhile, the facility is set to be in four more airports – Hyderabad, Pune, Vijayawada and Kolkata – by March next year.

In the coming period, services will be extended to all major airports in the country. For the passengers on domestic flights who want to check-in through the new technology, DigiYatra app is available for Android as well as ioS.

To benefit from the service, the traveler will be required to register his data on the DigiYatra app. This can be done using Aadhaar based verification and the passenger’s photo. Later, the plane will be scanned, and then the details will be shared with the airport about 24 hours before the flight. At the airport gate, the passenger will be able to check-in using the barcode on the scanned boarding pass and facial recognition.

However, other processes including security check and clearance will be done as per usual standards.
