New Delhi: Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia visited the Delhi airport on Thursday to supervise the progress of Digi Yatra mechanism that allows the passengers to check-in at the airport using biometric technology.

"Visited the CISF Security Center at the @DelhiAirport to understand & learn about the systems in use. Safety, security & a smooth passenger experience is our utmost priority. Not to mention that our Jawans keep strict vigil 24x7. My salute to them, including the support staff," he tweeted.

The minister said he also met a few workers, who were travelling abroad, from Jharkhand at the T3 terminal of the Delhi airport on Thursday.

"Had a brief chat about their experience and wait time at the airport. On being told it was 10 hours, requested airport officials to serve food and ensure their well being," he tweeted.
