Mum­bai: In a move aimed at mak­ing air travel has­sle-free, pas­sen­gers board­ing do­mes­tic flights from ter­mi­nal 2 of Mum­bai air­port won’t need to have their board­ing passes stamped post se­cu­rity check.

“Do­mes­tic pas­sen­gers trav­el­ing from ter­mi­nal 2 can now au­then­ti­cate their board­ing pass at pre-em­barka­tion se­cu­rity check point by scan­ning the board­ing pass bar­code or QR code on their phone at the Egates Reader,” said a state­ment is­sued by Mum­bai In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ltd (MIAL). “This au­then­ti­ca­tion of board­ing pass will elim­i­nate the re­spon­si­bil­ity of CISF phys­i­cal check­ing per­son­nel to stamp the board­ing pass,” MIAL said.

With this, Mum­bai air­port is the first in the coun­try to in­tro­duce this tech­nol­ogy un­der the min­istry of civil avi­a­tion’s Digi Ya­tra, the gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive launched last year to make air travel dig­i­tal.
