Boarding pass and other documents required to enter the airport

Boarding pass & identity proof documents are very important while traveling. Every airline company has to work under government rules and regulations. As per the government rules, entry to the airports are governed by the government agencies strictly.

Passengers can carry a valid ID proof which could be any of the following:

  • Adhar Card
  • Passport
  • Driving License
  • PAN card

As a result, you have to carry the copy of the E-boarding-Pass/E-ticket. Apart from that a printed copy of either the E-ticket or boarding-pass (Passenger will get it after check in online) to enter the airport.

What is Boarding Pass?

Boarding pass is a document provided by airline companies during check-in. It is kind of permission for passengers to enter the restricted area of an airport and to board the plane for a particular flight. Airport staff can identify traveler’s journey details. It includes their identity, flight number, and the date and scheduled time for departure. If travelers are using the web check services then they can print the boarding passes themselves. A boarding pass is must for travelers to enter the secure area of airport.

Almost every airport has installed the automatic readers that can verify the validity of the boarding pass at the jet way door or boarding gate. The best thing about these automatic readers is that they can automatically updates the airline’s database that shows the passenger has boarded and the seat is used. Airline companies can also update the checked baggage information for that passenger. It helps the airline company to serve the customer better with luggage services. This helps to increase the work speed for the paperwork process at the gate, but requires passengers with paper tickets to check in, surrender the ticket, and receive the digitized boarding pass.

Which documents do I need to carry for my flight?

travel docs

Travel docs required for flight:- Travel Documents are most important thing to remember while traveling.

DOMESTIC FLIGHT:

Travel docs for Adult: A Valid Identity proof, in original (Passport/ Driving License/Voter’s Id Card/Pan Card/Photo Id card issued by employer/Adhar Card)

Travel docs for Children: School Identification card or any other photo ID.

For Infants: Valid Birth Certificate is required.

TRAVEL DOCS FOR INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT:

Your passport is the only valid photo ID proof. However, I have a pro tip for all the travelers. I am sharing this from my personal travel experiences.

Always carry your drivers license while traveling.

Most often you need a local license to legally drive anyways, but at least if you’re pulled over on a scooter you can show them something that might confuse them enough to let you go. Also, I’ve been guided by my friends living in different locations that you can use your license for multiple purpose.

Apart from this, If you’re in college, it doesn’t hurt to take a student ID. You can get discounts at museums and attractions or even movie tickets.

Finally, a pro tip for international travelers.

Always write down your debit card numbers in case your card is stolen. You can also photo copy them. It’s difficult to get a new card sent out and what your find is easier in case of a lost card is:

  • Using those numbers to book as much as you can online.
  • You can send Western Union money to yourself when you need cash.

Boarding pass contains a lot of traveler information. I will always suggest you to destroy the boarding pass after traveling. This is because the two-dimensional bar-codes and QR codes can hold a great deal of information. The codes printed on your airline boarding passes may allow someone to discover more about you, your upcoming travel plans, and your frequent flyer account information.

There are websites which can easily read the bar-codes and decode information in fraction of seconds. So be careful with your boarding pass. People often share their boarding pass images on social media which is not a good thing to do. It is not safe to share your personal information on social platforms. If you really want to share it then always hide the bar-code. It is also good to use shredder for used boarding pass instead of throwing it in dustbins. The next time you travel, make sure to keep your boarding pass safe and destroy it to avoid such problems.
