New Delhi: Air travellers can now enter airports by showing a soft display of air tickets on their smart-phones, tablets and laptops.
No more printouts needed but will it speed up queues? PTI
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), which is the nodal agency for civil aviation security, has issued
orders for acceptability of soft display of tickets on laptops, tablets and smart-phones at the entry point of airport, an official spokesperson said.
Currently, it is mandatory for travellers to carry printout of the e-ticket along with their valid identity cards to enter into the airport.
Indian Railways had implemented the system of accepting the soft display of the ticket about a year back. It has been a long standing demand of the people to introduce the system in the aviation sector soon.
