New Delhi: Travellers no longer need to download a mobile application to use the DigiYatra service at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.
According to a statement released on Thursday by Delhi International Airport Limited, the initiative that was inaugurated at Terminal 3 of IGI Airport would allow users to access the facility through a straightforward three-step registration process.
The passengers would need to scan their boarding pass and face, as well as present an identification proof to the security staff stationed near the registration counter, as part of the registration process. After successfully registering, the passengers will be free to move about the terminal, the security checkpoint area, and the boarding gates without any problems.
CEO of Delhi International Airport Limited Videh Kumar Jaipuriar commented on the initiative, saying, "We have been working tirelessly to improve the passenger experience at Delhi Airport. With the help of our most recent project, anyone can use DigiYatra to its fullest potential and travel conveniently. With DigiYatra, travellers may travel more quickly, safely, and comfortably while also getting to spend more time at the airport with their loved ones.
Launched on December 1st, 2022, is DigiYatra. The programme guarantees quicker passenger movement to boarding gates, hassle-free travel, improved security, and dedicated gates while being totally contactless, saving passengers at least 15 to 25 minutes. As of right now, all departure gates in Terminals 3 and 2 of the IGI Airport are serviced by DigiYatra.
In addition to the current DigiYatra mobile application, which enables users to register themselves for uninterrupted and hassle-free airport travel using a handheld mobile device, DIAL is now providing this new service.
About DigiYatra: An industry-led project called DigiYatra employs facial recognition technology to make security clearance and terminal admission at airports quick, easy, and paperless. The software verifies fliers' identities using facial recognition technology. Air travellers can store their IDs and travel documents on the decentralised mobile ID storage platform known as DigiYatra.
This platform, which was unveiled by the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) and the Digi Yatra Foundation, is the next development in the creation of a community that is empowered by technology. DigiYatra, the airline of the future, enables the autonomous digital processing of passengers. Air travellers benefit from shorter wait times and a quicker, more efficient boarding process thanks to Delhi Airport's DigiYatra platform.
Paperless air travel is made possible by DigiYatra, which also makes it easier for travellers to navigate airport procedures with little physical contact. By utilising cutting-edge biometric security techniques, travellers can quickly pass through the cameras. DigiYatra provides simple admission at all checkpoints because to its four foundational components, which are connected passengers, connected flying, connected airports, and linked systems.
