Soon, air travellers in India will be able to travel without a boarding pass

If you are flying from Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad airport anywhere in India, you will no longer need boarding passes as the civil authorities will be introducing biometric-based boarding system very soon.

Reportedly, the biometric-based boarding system uses facial recognition technology for id proof, and trials have already started to make boarding completely paper-free. It will take hardly two minutes to register for smooth access, and then the passengers can straightaway go to the boarding gate.

Lately, Vistara is experimenting with this biometric trial for the next two to three months and passengers can participate in it by registering at their kiosk in Delhi airport’s Terminal 3.

Once this new technology is implemented, paper tags for hand luggage, paper boarding passes and other paper documents will become redundant. This initiative will be a part of civil aviation ministry’s DigiYatra policy. Biometric facial recognition technology at the airports will also result in faster processing and reduced waiting time in queues.
