Indian airport security is set to be given a boost with the introduction of biometric ID cards from April 2010 onwards. Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport will be the launch site for these, the Hindustan Times reported, with other airports around the country adopting them soon after.

Airport workers, airline representatives and other people engaged in work at this airport will soon receive smart cards to replace the AEPs (Airport Entry Passes) in use now. Issuing the new cards will be the responsibility of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security.
