Mumbai Airport eliminates boarding pass stamping for domestic airlines, at least for February 2019.
After centuries of old traditional way of using the airport, Suddenly, Indian aviation is developing faster than last 20 years combined in last 5 years.
- We have tons of new airports opening up (Mostly in North East India).
- Allahabad received a new airport – Thanks to Kumbh Mela.
- Indigo Airlines is adding an incredible amount of capacity
- Hand Baggage Stamping removed at most of the airport in India
- Mumbai and Bangalore (More airport being added soon), where boarding passes are being scanned by bar code reader gate vs human. (Yes, It might confuse people who are less technology friendly. )
Now, domestic passengers flying out of Mumbai Airport’s Terminal 2 won’t have to get their boarding passes stamped during February 2019. The CISF, which is responsible for the security of Mumbai Airport and passenger frisking, has started the trials of the project.
Lets hope, we soon don’t have to be physically touched to go through the screening. Just remove all objects to the tray and walk through the scanner. If some passenger sets off the scanner, they can be frisked on the side.
