What is Digi Yatra?

Digi Yatra intends to offer seamless, contactless passenger processing at airports using Facial Recognition Technology (FRT). As a result, at various airport checkpoints, passenger data will be processed automatically based on facial recognition technology.

Currently, in addition to the IGIA, it will be accessible at the airports in Bengaluru and Varanasi. Four more cities will be included by March 2023: Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, and Vijayawada. The technology will then be made available to additional people.

Details About Digi Yatra ID

Passengers can obtain this ID by giving information such as their name, email address, mobile number, and specifics of an identification document after downloading the Digi Yatra app from the Google Play Store or the iOS app store (Aadhaar, driving license, voter ID etc.). A Digi Yatra ID will be generated after this information is entered; it must be given when purchasing tickets. The departing airport will receive this ID and the airline’s passenger data.

What should one do at the airport?

Your identity will be verified online if you selected Aadhaar-based verification. The verification, however, would be carried out manually by security staff at the airport if you chose another identity card.

How to use the Digi Yatra facility?

Scan the barcoded boarding pass at the airport e-gate; the facial recognition technology there will verify your identification and the travel document. After that, you can enter and proceed as usual to get through security and board your aircraft.
