Bengaluru Bengaluru airport to adopt facial recognition technology

 Bengaluru: Domestic travellers at Kempegowda International Airport can now anticipate quicker passage through the terminal thanks to the Digi Yatra app, which makes use of facial recognition technology. The app, which had previously only been available to a select group of users, was made available to all users as of December 1. Passengers can use this to sign up for the Digi Yatra app using their identifying information and face biometrics. After that, they won't need any identification or travel documents to leave the airport because the exit gates' biometric technology would confirm their identity. Only travellers travelling out on Vistara, Air India, Air Asia, or IndiGo airlines from Bengaluru Airport may use the facility.

For a simple and convenient travel experience, the app offers a contactless, paperless, and seamless check-in to boarding process. The information is securely saved and destroyed 24 hours following the passenger's trip in consideration of privacy concerns. On August 15, 2022, the Ministry of Civil Aviation released the app's beta version, which was solely accessible to Android users. With the entire roll-out, iOS users were also given access to the facility. The facility is currently accessible to travellers departing from Delhi and Varanasi airports in addition to Bengaluru.
