Digi Yatra by the Government of India
“The Digiyatra initiative envisages airline passengers, a speedy, hassle-free, digitally unified air travel experience across all stages of the trip. It is a milestone in the history of Indian aviation, and we are proud to be chosen as one of the airports for a proof of concept for Digi Yatra by the Government of India.
GHIAL had earlier initiated face recognition problems which received wide acclaim across the airport ecosystem. This technology will enable passengers paperless travel, and they will be able to use a face scan as a boarding pass,” GHIAL CEO Pradeep Panicker said.
According to the system, the passengers will no longer require to show their tickets/ boarding passes and their physical Identity cards at the checkpoints of the airport as the DigiYatra Biometric Boarding System is integrated with the identity document.
With this, there will be reduced queue waiting times, faster processing times, and simpler processes enhancing the passenger experience. Also, DigiYatra enables the passengers to receive a relevant statement about various facilities, protocols, airline timings, and queue waiting times at the airport.
The GMR Hyderabad International Airport is one of the 5 airports that has been selected to roll out the DigiYatra program. The process is purely voluntary, and the normal non-biometric process shall continue to function.
