Bengaluru, gear up for DigiYatra: Here's how your face will be your passport at KIA

Bengaluru: Your travel to Bengaluru's Kempegowda International Airport may already be a tedious affair duue to the congested roads. But the Ministry of Civil Aviation hopes to make your journey through the airport a lot faster, smoother and hassle-free.

According to a report in the Bangalore Mirror, entry into the airport, security check and aircraft boarding will be processed based on facial biometric systems soon.

The report says that the first phase of DigiYatra will be implemented by the end of the year at several airports, including Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). This paper-free journey experience also promises to give air travellers a seamless and hassle-free journey.

This DigiYatra initiative is the brainchild of the Ministry of Civil Aviation. It will use the facial biometrics system to identify travellers at checkpoints like an entry point, entry into security, and aircraft boarding.

In July 2019, as part of the DigiYatra, Early Go Live, a fully biometric-based self-boarding solution for a seamless flow from registration to boarding was launched by the KIA, says the Bangalore Mirror report.
