No stamping of domestic flyers’ boarding passes at Mumbai’s T2
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.
