Delhi airport to install facial recognition technology, trials to begin from September 6

New Delhi: The Delhi International Airport is all set to begin trials of its facial recognition system from September 6. The system will be rolled out on a trial-basis in collaboration with Vistara airlines.

The facility will be tried at Delhi airport's Terminal 3 (T3). After the trials are completed, the biometric system will be officially rolled out across all terminals of Delhi airport.

With this technology, passengers' entry will be processed automatically. It will be based on the facial recognition system at all check-points including the airport entry, entry into security-checks as well as the aircraft boarding.

Passengers can enroll for facial recognition using valid flight tickets and government ID proofs at registration kiosks at T3.

After that, the camera will capture the passengers' facial details. The CISF personnel, present at the kiosks, will also physically verify the passenger's documents and confirm the same on the system.

Then, the passengers can move towards the departure gates, which will be fitted with the facial recognition system and automatically open upon clearance.

Following that, the passengers can proceed towards the check-in counters to drop off their bags. In case the passengers are not carrying luggage, then they can move forward to the security-check gates, which are again fitted with facial recognition systems.

After security screening, the passengers can head straight for the boarding gates that will open automatically, again upon facial recognition.
