In accordance with the Digi Yatra project, a traveller will go through numerous checkpoints at the airport using paperless and contactless processing, establishing their identity using facial features and linking it to their boarding pass.
“DIAL had installed the required facility at Terminal 3 of Delhi Airport and already conducted its DigiYatra trials. Nearly 20,000 passengers had the seamless and secured travel experience after using the facility during the trials”, its statement read.
These 20,000-odd passengers then provided their biometric and other information through kiosks at Terminal 3 for their respective flights.
Now, passengers will submit their biometrics and other details through this app and it will remain stored for all the flights they will take at the Delhi airport’s Terminal 3. A passenger is not required to supply the biometric details at Terminal 3 before each flight.
The DigiYatra app’s beta version is currently accessible for Android users, and it will be made available for IOS users in a few weeks, according to the DIAL. Passengers will be able to use the app to complete their entire biometric registration through it.
Once the application is downloaded, the passenger will have to register their phone number and Aadhaar card details. Thereafter, the passenger has to capture a selfie, add vaccination details and scan the boarding pass.
