Taking a step forward in its ambitious Digi Yatra project, Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru has announced the launch of Early Go Live — a biometric-based self-boarding solution aimed at enhancing the passenger experience at airports.

Under this process, travellers have to enroll their ID and biometric data, along with their flight details, before entering the terminal.  The data is used only for authentication and verification of passengers and is deleted within a few hours of flight completion.

Commenting on this news, Hari Marar, managing director and chief executive officer at Bengaluru International Airport (BIAL) said, “BIAL is extremely excited to roll out this Digi Yatra-based biometric technology that has the potential to make the passenger experience at the BLR Airport seamless, secure and enjoyable.

“As the gateway to a new India, the BLR Airport would like to be a frontrunner amongst next-generation airport operations.”
