Mumbai, January 21
Aviation regulator DGCA has put in place norms for the rollout of the “digi yatra” facility, which will make air travel paperless and hassle-free.
The airlines will make a provision to collect the digi yatra ID of the passenger for domestic travel at the time of the booking. The passenger will have the option to offer any one of the approved IDs.
The digi yatra ID will be authenticated during the first travel at an airport with such a facility. The airline will ensure that e-tickets have a 2D/QR barcode following “one person, one ticket & one code” rule. The airlines have to collect passport number for international travel. — PTI
