Currently, it is mandatory for travellers to carry a hard copy of their e-ticket and an identity card for each traveller to enter the airports.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has issued orders for acceptability of soft display of tickets at the entry point of airport, an official spokesperson said.
