The government has launched the Facial Identification System in Indian airports!

To make things easier for air travellers across India, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has launched DigiYatra. Jyotiraditya Scindia, Minister of Civil Aviation, stated that the information of passengers will be securely stored and organised with their information. Registering once and linking with the Adhar Card for Digi Yatra is enough to access it. In certain airports, a long wait for processing will happen; most of the time, it burdens those standing in line. It is advantageous to avoid instances of waiting and to progress on your own.

This technology is paperless and uses secure structures to advance. The passenger’s ID and travel credentials are stored in DigiYatra’s wallet, and an individual can check at any time for the required information on the same. DigiYatra will be available as an application convenient to be used on smartphones, and it supports Android and IOS. The travel information uploaded by the user will be automatically deleted after 24 hours, as it is protected by blockchain technology.

For now, Air India, IndiGo, and Air Vistara are part of DigiYatra. It began in three airports: Varanasi, Delhi, and Bangalore, and will be operational in four more airports by March 2023: Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Kolkata, and Pune. DigiYatra tracks domestic flights throughout India. This service can be accessed with mobile devices from anywhere and will be helpful to check-in passengers by eliminating the use of ID cards and boarding tickets.

With its variety of features, the digital system of accessing information in this technology is far more beneficial. The team is also working with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), a global group consisting of 290 airlines, or 80% of total air traffic, to establish new advancements, which will be updated soon.
