Trial run: Pune airport to use e-Gates facility for 45 days

Pune: In a first, Pune airport is going to use Bar Code Boarding Pass (BCBP) e-Gates to make the entry into the airport easy and seamless, officials with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said.
The facility will be started at Pune airport on a ‘trial run’ after the idea was approved by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) for a period of 45 days.
“The BCAS has recently approved to start the trial run at Pune Airport, making it the first among all the airports managed by the AAI to use the facility. The trial run will start in the first week of March and will run for 45 days. After that, a report will be provided to BCAS before taking the final decision on using the facility on a permanent basis,” said Ajay Kumar, airport director, Pune.
The BCBP e-Gates makes the process of authenticating boarding passes of fliers faster, simpler and convenient. According to officials, the BCBP e-Gates validates the authenticity of the boarding pass, including confirmation that the boarding pass is for an active flight on the day of travel. “The BCBP e-Gates process, which takes less than five seconds, also improves passenger processing and is user friendly, based on passengers’ feedback, since the machines were inaugurated last week,” said an official.
