Velana International Airport Now Accepts Digital Identity Cards For Domestic Flights

Velana International Airport (VIA) has started to accept digital identity cards for domestic flights in a step forward in alignment with the initiative by the National Centre for Information Technology.

Passengers flying domestically from VIA can now use any of the following non-expired documents for an 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.

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