The beta version of the DigiYatra app was released at the Kempegowda International Airport.
What’s it about? The DigiYatra app enables a seamless process for passengers at the airport with a single token face biometric used for identification and verification. It’s a project from the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
- Currently, Vistara and Air India have integrated their boarding processes with the app and platform. The Bengaluru International Airport is one of two in the country selected for the first phase of the rollout.
- Available on the Google Playstore and soon to be available for iOS users, the app has been in development since January 2017. The DigiYatra Central Ecosystem (DYCE) will be used country-wide and be the keeper of the passenger ID process.
What about privacy? The app ensures that personal data is secured. The data isn’t shared with anyone and is deleted after 24 hours following their travel.
