New Delhi: Now it would be a stress-free affair to make entry into the airport terminals as bringing a hard copy of the e-ticket would come to an end. After verifying the e-mail sent by the airlines on their smartphones, tablets or laptops, passengers would be allowed to enter the airport terminal.
Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) passed a circular in this regard and ordered all the airport authorities including Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) to follow the guidelines.

However, the BCAS has made it clear that only the soft copy of the original ticket will be treated as original and not the vague details on SMS or any incomplete e-ticket.

“It is said that the travellers forget to bring their printed e-ticket and rush to shops at the last minute to get printouts. Nowadays, everybody carries electronic gadgets. So, it would become easy for them to get entry into the terminal by showing the mail sent by the airlines,” top official said.

It has also been mentioned in the circular that the mail sent in the gadget should be original copy of airlines operator. Only then, it would be accepted. Apart from it, Indian passengers have to show their ID cards issued by government, while foreigners will have to show their passports.

“Many e-tickets have been seized with fake passengers’ names. So to stop this fraudulence department has decided to do this”, BCAS official said.
