Velana International Airport Accepts Digital Identity Cards for Domestic Flights

PUBLISHED June 01, 2023 | updated June 01, 2023 04:03

Velana International Airport (VIA) now accepts digital identity cards for domestic flights, which is a step forward in alignment with the initiative by the National Centre for Information Technology.

The move follows the issuance of a circular by the Ministry of Defence, authorizing the acceptance of a wider range of identification documents by VIA for checking in passengers on domestic flights.

Passengers flying domestically from VIA can now use any of the following non-expired documents for airline ticket purchase, check-in, and identification at security checkpoints:

- Passport

- Citizenship card / Digital Citizenship card

- Work Visa Card / Digital Work Visa Card

- License Card / Digital License Card

- Airport Security Pass

- Photo issued by a government agency and an official document bearing the ID card number

This new development reaffirms MACL's commitment to enhancing passenger convenience and embracing digital transformation in its operations.
