A three-month trial of the biometric facial recognition entry system for domestic passengers of Vistara airlines will be started at IGI Airport’s Terminal 3 from September 6, said officials.

A DIAL spokesperson said, “Participation in the trials is purely voluntary and at discretion of passengers…”
