DigiYatra : New way of traveling

Through the DigiYatra Platform, the Ministry of Civil Aviation is expanding the digital experience available to air travellers. Aligned with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Digital India goal to create a digitally empowered nation, the “DigiYatra” is an industry-led programme managed by the Ministry.

What is DigiYatra ?

DigiYatra is the term for the digital passenger processing at airports. At checkpoints such as the aircraft boarding, security check, and entry point check, passengers will be automatically processed using a facial recognition technology. Additionally, by using face recognition and data recall to identify travellers, this will simplify self-bag drop and check-in. Travelling paperless and avoiding identity checks at many locations would be made easier with DigiYatra.

DigiYatra Enrolment Process

In a central system, passengers can create a DigiYatra ID by supplying the following:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Mobile number
  • Identity Details (Aadhar, Driver’s Licence, Voter ID, etc.)

DigiYatra IDs are created upon submission. Passengers may mention this number when securing their ticket. Airline data, including DigiYatra ID, will be transmitted to the airport of departure. When travelling for the first time, passengers must visit the airport registration kiosk to get their IDs validated.

  1. The Aadhar verification process will be conducted online.
  2. Should another ID exist, CISF will independently confirm.

After a successful verification, the passenger’s photo will be posted to the central DigiYatra profile.
