Varanasi Airport To Get Facial Recognition Security System Under Digiyatra Scheme


The Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport in Varanasi will soon become the first airport in the country to have an automated smart facial recognition system, ensuring hassle-free movement of travellers from entry to boarding points.

“The installation of the automated security system is already underway. Automated walkthrough security scanners equipped with facial recognition technology are being installed at the airport’s entry, security and boarding points,” said airport director AK Rai.

The system has been developed under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious DigiYatra scheme. Varanasi is among three airports – the others being Visakhapatnam and Kolkata – selected under the programme for availing of this facility.

The walk-through security scanners, which are capable of identifying passengers by their faces, will make entry into the airport faster and ensure automated check-ins without the requirement of any paper-based intervention.  Read More
