Delhi airport to start facial recognition system on trial basis from today

According to a report in The Hindu Business Line, Delhi airport will roll out a three-month trial to demonstrate a Biometric Enabled Seamless Travel Experience (BEST) from today.

The trial will be based on Facial Recognition Technology. Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) will launch the trial with Vistara at Terminal 3 (T3) of the Indira Gandhi International Airport. With this Delhi, the busiest airport in the country, will join the growing number of airports including Hyderabad where such a facility has been tried. With the start of the trial at T3, passengers’ entry will be automatically processed based on the facial recognition system at all checkpoints including airport entry, entry for security checks, and boarding the aircraft.  

The enrolment process for passengers with valid flight tickets and government ID proofs will start at the registration kiosk after which their facial details will be captured by a camera.  At the same time the documents provided by the passengers will be validated by CISF personnel at the kiosk. The applicant’s ID proof will be physically checked and confirmed this on the system. After this the passenger can approach the dedicated departure e-gate, which too is fitted with facial recognition cameras. The e-gates will open automatically after the facial recognition process is complete.
