Digi Yatra - All you need to know for easy travel

In a significant stride toward modernizing air travel, the Indian Government introduced the DigiYatra service, revolutionizing entry procedures at airports. Launched to facilitate paperless and contactless entry, this innovative service allows passengers to embark on their journeys without the need for a physical boarding pass.

DigiYatra leverages a sophisticated Facial Recognition System (FRS) to verify passengers’ identities, seamlessly linked to their boarding passes. The primary objective is to craft a delightful and memorable digital travel experience, offering a fully biometric-based self-boarding solution for a smooth flow from registration to boarding.
