Govt to make unique digital ID must for flight ticket bookings
Air passengers will soon be required to share their unique identity details at the time of booking tickets, as the government looks to facilitate paperless travel.
Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha today said the Ministry plans to introduce "digital unique identification" requirement at the time of booking air tickets.
Air travellers are already required to carry a copy of their identity while entering an airport.
Now, a digital unique identification such as Aadhaar, PAN (Permanent Account Number), Passport Number is being proposed for air passengers, Sinha said .
