Rajiv Gandhi International receives government approval for e-boarding system

Rajiv Gandhi International Airport near Hyderabad, India, has become the first airport in the country to receive approval for the implementation of an end-to-end e-boarding security system for domestic passengers.

The announcement from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) comes on the back of a successful trial carried out in partnership with Jet Airways and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

Once fully implemented, passengers will simply need to present their e-boarding card and Aadhaar to gain entry to the airport. The system is also capable of accepting printed boarding cards from the common use self-service (CUSS) machines.

SGK Kishore, CEO, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL), the airport operator, said, “We are proud to become the first Indian airport to get approval for implementation of the e-boarding facility. Our e-boarding solution is in line with the ongoing ‘Digital India’ initiative envisioned by Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India.

“The seamless collaboration with cross functional teams and our stakeholders – Jet Airways and CISF – enabled us to move from concept stage to the implementation in the shortest possible time. The robustness of our technology-enabled solution is evident in the fact that we have become the first airport to receive the approval from the authorities.”
