DigiYatra App: How To Avail Services, All About Contactless Travel Experience At Airports

The 'DigiYatra' is a Biometric Enabled Seamless Travel experience (BEST) based on Facial Recognition Technology for the identification of travelers in order to pass through various checkpoints which would be linked to the boarding pass. It aims to provide a paperless and seamless travel experience to the passengers.

The passengers' entry would be automatically processed based on the facial recognition system at all checkpoints including entry into the airport, security check areas, aircraft boarding, etc with the help of this technology.

DigiYatra will further make the boarding process significantly faster and more seamless as each passenger would require less than three seconds at every touchpoint. Their face would act as their documents, like ID proof, Vaccine proof, and also act as a boarding pass.

This technology will also ensure enhanced security at the airport as the passenger data is validated with Airlines Departure control System, thereby only designated passengers can enter the terminal. The entire process is non-intrusive and automatic leading to optimization of staff for stakeholders like CISF, airlines and others.

How To avail DigiYatra facility?

In order to avail the DigiYatra app, firstly the passengers will have to download the DigiYatra app. The beta version of the DigiYatra app is presently available at Playstore (for the Android platform). The same app will be available at App Store (for IOS platform) in a few weeks' time.

After downloading the app, the users can register on the app using Aadhaar credentials, followed by a selfie with the Aadhaar card for verification. 

Following the verification, the vaccination details using CoWIN credentials will have to be added to the app. 

The users then will have to scan their boarding pass with the QR code or Bar code, after which the credentials will be shared with the airport.

The passengers will need to scan their boarding passes at the e-gate for entry into the airport, and look into the facial recognition system camera installed there. A similar method will be available for entry into other checkpoints.
