Digi Yatra is a biometric boarding system using Facial Recognition Technology to provide a seamless and hassle-free experience for passengers at airports. It enhances passenger experience by eliminating the need for verification of ticket and ID at multiple touchpoints and provides better throughput through existing infrastructure using a Digital Framework.
It is being implemented across airports in a phased manner. In the first phase, it was launched by HMCA Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia on 01.12.2022 at Delhi, Bengaluru, and Varanasi Airports. The implementation of biometric boarding system under phase I is also planned at Kolkata, Pune, Vijayawada, and Hyderabad Airports by March 2023.

This is a voluntary facility. In the Digi Yatra process, there is no central storage of passengers’ Personally Identifiable Information data. All the passenger’s data is encrypted and stored in the wallet of the passenger’s smartphone and shared only for a limited time duration with the airport of travel origin where the passenger’s Digi Yatra ID needs to be validated. The data is purged from the system within 24 hours of the flight.
The total number of passengers who have used the biometric boarding system process at the airports from 1st Dec 22 to 14th Feb 23 is more than 1.6 Lakh. Total app user base of this app on the Android Play Store & iOS Apple App Store is 422K.
