Mumbai Airport Eliminates ‘Boarding Pass Stamping’ for Domestic Flyers

India’s second busiest airport, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport has stopped physical stamping of boarding passes for domestic passengers.

Passengers travelling within India from Terminal 2 can authenticate their boarding pass at the pre-embarkation security checkpoints. They need to scan its barcode or QR code with their mobile phones using Live Passenger Dataset at the e-gates.

This makes Mumbai Airport the first in the country to introduce the latest technology, proposed by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

MIAL (Mumbai International Airport Ltd.) spokesperson said, “We have the e-gates ready at Terminal 2, and will eliminate stamping of boarding passes by security personnel as soon as we get the go ahead.”

He further added, “It will save time, provide a “harmonious experience” to passengers, and improve the overall throughput of the security check procedure.”
