From now on, govt ID a must to book domestic flights

The Centre will issue the final rules for "no fly list" (NFL) on Friday. Once implemented, one will need to give number of any of the following IDs — Aadhaar, driving licence, passport or Pan number — while booking a domestic ticket.

For international travel, passport number is anyway mandatory.


"India is pioneering in having a no fly list on the basis of safety as other countries have it on security grounds. A DGCA team (led by chief BS Bhullar) recently had discussions with global regulators at a meet in Mongolia. We had received comments on the draft NFL and after much deliberations, the final rules will be issued on Friday," Union minister of state for aviation Jayant Sinha said.

One of the reasons for the NFL taking some time to get implemented was due to the process of ensuring that a person on this list should not be able to fly using another name. "We are going to issue a civil aviation requirement (CAR or rule issued by DGCA) where some identity card number will have to be provided. People giving Aadhaar numbers will soon be able to get digital boarding cards," Sinha said.
