MUMBAI: At the Bengaluru airport, soon your face will be your boarding pass. The airport is set to become the first airport in India to have an end-to-end solution for paperless air travel.

 

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operators of the Bengaluru (BLR Airport) and Vision-Box have signed an agreement to launch paperless biometric self-boarding technology, said a statement issued by BIAL.
 
The first implementation milestone at BLR Airport will be completed in the first quarter of 2019, with Jet Airways, Air Asia and SpiceJet passengers as first users, it said.
 
"Your face is your boarding pass," said BIAL's MD & CEO Hari Marar, describing the revolutionary technology that is set to transform air travel. "Vision-Box's state-of-the-art biometric technology, combined with its passenger flow platform will enable a seamless journey for our passengers, without obstacles, waiting lines or hassles, from registration to boarding,” Marar added.
 
The goal of the programme is to simplify the journey by making it paperless from registration to boarding. Biometric technology will identify passengers by their face as they move across the airport, avoiding stops and the repeated presentation of boarding passes, passports or other physical identity documents," the statement said.
 
The contract was signed on Wednesday in Lisbon, Portugal.
