Valid ID Proofs for Domestic Flights – Indigo Airlines

Whenever people have to travel by air, they require valid ID proofs to be carried along with them. In India, these valid ID proofs for domestic flights are mentioned by the DGCA and which are acceptable to all airlines, irrespective of whether these are low cost carrier or legacy carriers.


These valid proofs that have photos of the person are:

  1. Driving License: Issue by the appropriate transport authority of each State or Union Territory, driving license is acceptable as a valid identity proof.
  2. Election Voter I-Card: Issued by the Election Commission of India, the voter identity card establishes that you have the right to vote and your identity is recorded in government documents.
  3. Permanent Account Number (PAN) Card: This is issued by the Income Tax Department of Government of India for every tax assesses of the Union of India. Hence, this is valid proof.
  4. Passport: Even for domestic travel by air, passport issued by the Ministry of External Affairs holds validity as a genuine identity proof.
  5. School ID cards for Children: When it comes to infants and children there is much confusion with respect to valid ID proofs. For children below 3 years of age, the valid ID cards are their birth certificates. If these are not available, then discharge summary of mother or the certificate can be carried. It is better to have some valid ID proof for infant for the purpose of Indigo check in so that there are no hassles at the airport. For children, who are above 3 years of age, their school card is considered as a valid ID proof.
  6. ID cards issued by the government departments and undertakings or from reputed private sector organizations for its employees can also be considered as valid for identification purposes. However, which private organization can be considered as reputed is something which limits the scope of this rule. Thus, only big organizations or companies, such as Tatas, Reliance and the likewise can come under its ambit.
  7. Aadhar Cards and the e-Adhaar cards are also recognized as valid proofs.

It is important that all these proofs shall be taken in original and photocopies will not work. Printout of e-adhaar card from the government website in colored format can also be considered as valid.

Indigo Not Permitting Affidavits as Valid ID Proofs

Earlier, Indigo Airlines had accepted the affidavits made in this respect if the people did not have valid identification proof for check-in purpose, but the practice has now been discontinued (save for some rare cases). This is because that this method is likely to be misused since getting affidavits made is very easy.

      • Sir I don’t have any government issued ID card for domestic travel I issued a verified affidavit for the identification also with my Bonafide certificate issued by principal of my college so will this all be sufficient for valid identification

  2. We planned the journey for our 2 month old boy when he was named in the name of Baby (mother’s Name). Now we have named him and have received a Birth certificate as well. We have Hospital certificates too. Will the different name on Birth certificate create any problem?

  3. hi,

    i booked a ticket for my family using my credit card.unfortunately i could not travel with them.
    she has only PAN card as her id proof and child of 3 and half years has no id proof because its with me.
    photocopy of passport of child is acceptable and should i also send my credit card copy as i booked thro it.

    • Yes, you shall provide the photocopy of the credit card which is used to book the tickets with your own authorisation on it. Original ID proofs are required to be provided for verification purpose and photocopy of passport might not be sufficient.

  4. My 2 year 1 month Baby need to travel in next week i have checked with authorities Adhar card is allowed after 3 years , pan card for her can not be made as she is hardly 2 …i have checked for passport but it is to short of time.. what else can be Identityproof in this case

  12. Hello team
    I have a problem I have a flight after 2 days. I am travelling with my wife and with 2 other 2 couples. We have booked ticket on one page. Now I have forgot my Orginal id proof (currently i have a copy of my id)at my hometown and my hometown is so far from jaipur. But my all friends have their Orginal id proof. So my query is, is it required all passenger have their Orginal id proof.
    One more small query is Registeration Card – RC of my vehicle is valid photo id proof ?


    • RC copy does not bear your photo, so it will not be accepted. If you have an adhaar card, then take a coloured print out from the original government website where this would be present and then it can be presented as a valid ID proof.

  13. I have a cousin who is 15 years old and has been a dropout from school for last 4 years. She was a student of a local state school which didn’t give any identity card. Can she travel with me and my mom, we have both valid ID cards and can book tickets under the same PNR?

  14. Hi, I have my 12 years old daughter which comes under Adult category while booking air ticket. She only has birth certificate and school id with photo. Myself and wife have valid ID proofs. Will she could fly domestic flights with school id card & birth certificate for age proof? Same for my 2nd daughter who is at age 6.

      • Is passbook of any bank accepted? Or only SBI? Plus I only have passbook as a identity proof..will that work? I mean will HDFC or ICICI passbook work?

          • I have a Bonafide certificate issued from my University which has my photo and is duly stamped, will that work?
            Because my wallet got stolen and all my documents were in it and the least I can do is get a certificate from my University which has my photo and is stamped.

  15. Dear admin

    i am travelling with my wife and 2 yr old daughter , i have all the valid proof but my wife who is still a student is only having college ID proof (with Photo ) and my daughter has vaccination report card only .

    Please help

    • College ID card could work. However, it would be good to think of something else as well. May be a bank passbook with photo ID duly stamped could also work.
      Vaccination card for the kid would be acceptable.

  16. M sister is travelling to mumbai in Indigo Airlines, with her 2 sons.
    1. 4 years old carrying DOB certificate in Hindi language mentioning DOB and mother’s first name only(without photo).
    2. 6 months – Adhar card with photo and DOB (under Name coloumn is “Baby of mother’s name” written).
    3. My sister she is carrying her Adhar card with proper name.
    Please let me know if everything will work or not?
    and please provide your suggestion, if any.

    Fast response awaited.

    Thanks in advance.

    • These shall be fine. TO be on safe side, it is better to carry the school ID card for the 4 years old child as another proof.

  17. I booked a ticket in my mothers name before marriage and will be accompanying me in domestic flight. She does not have a valid photo id in her old name except xerox of pan card. however, she has adhar card in the new name. Will it be valid ? Alternatively can a photo-id letter issued by state MLA work ?

    • If she is travelling international, then a passport is must. However, in case of domestic travel, the list of valid ID proofs are provided in the content above.

  18. Hi myself and my wife have aadhar card driving license and voter ID my son studying in 3rd standard he lost his ID proof. I have his 2nd standard I’d card and school diary with photo and stamp it is enough.

    • If you tell airline officials that he is studying in 3rd std but carrying ID of 2nd standard, then it could be a problem. So, take whatever ID you have. Second, you can also take the birth certificate or his vaccination chart to prove the age.

  19. Hi,
    I am having all valid proofs but this time my 8 years child travelling with me. He is having school ID card and birth certificate given by GHMC Hyderabad.He does not have any other documents.Is he eligible to travel with me.

  20. Hi I am planning to Travel on 9th Dec with my Child. She will complete 2 years on 2nd Dec. In this case she will be treated as infant or passenger ?? She will get separate seat or not ?

  21. I didn’t have personal id proof but I have a Xerox copy of my father’s Rashan card with my name.. can travel with this with my cousin brother who have his valid id like pan aadhar and voter id.

    • Ration card is not counted among the valid proofs. Please outline what other IDs do you have, may be someone among it can be considered?

  22. Hi,

My father has forgotten his Voter ID and it is not possible to collect it now, since we are not in our hometown. I, my wife and my mom are having Valid ID proofs with us. However, my father has his bank passbook (nationalized bank) with his photograph, so will this be acceptable in this case? Please let me know urgently, otherwise I’ll have to cancel my tickets.


  23. I am flying in 2 wks with my family. Me, my wife and daughter have the Id proof but my grandmother who is nearly 90 yrs only has the photocopy of her Adharcard. Would it be alright ? Or ..

    • It has to be a reputed organization. We suggest you speak to the airline on whether your organization would be considered reputed or not.

  24. hii my grandmother she is in Hyderabad now she is going to portblair .she have local certificate ID proof of portblair is it okay? And does th airline give any consection on flight ticket?

  25. My baby completed 4month on 28th November. I have to travel from kolkata to mumbai due to some emergency but her birth certificate will be received in Jan 2017. For issuing birth cerficate all original documents submitted. Kindly let me know, what document will be used for her age proof?

    • Vaccination chart, Mother discharge summary, hospital ID proof… these are some of the docs which can be used. We would still request that you contact the airline to get confirmation.

      • Fit certificate along with birth details of my child issued by doctor, vaccination chart/certificate, photocopy of original birth certificate issued by hospital and attested by doctor. These documents are available with us so please confirm can we travel from Kolkata to Mumbai?

  26. Actually I booked a ticket on 18dec 2016 my name is Joel philip Mathew but in the ticket my name is mentioned as…. Joel Mathew…. is there any problem??

    • Name on ticket must be same as that of the valid ID proof. Now, you can always request the airline to look into the matter.

  27. Me and my wife are traveling with valid ID. But our domestic help will travel with us but she has no id apart from pass book of nationalized bank. Will that be sufficient?

  28. Hi Team,

    2. Do i need to write full name of surname or first letter of surname.

    Best Regards,

    • In case of any discrepancy in names on ID proof and tickets, please bring this to the notice of the airline. There are remedies to the problem.

  29. Hi,

    I will be travelling with my child (2 months old) from indigo. I have got computer generated birth certificate print out with me. We have not yet registered our child name so the birth certificate is not having the child name. But my name is there on the birth certificate. Will there be any problem?

    • You will have to take the original ID proofs. Photocopies will not work. You can also take the vaccination chart or hospital ID proof

  30. My daughter is 4 years old.. i do not have aadhar card/PAN/Passport for her yet.. we have a flight within a week… will the birth certificate be ok for her travel in domestic flight?

  31. Actually I booked a ticket for 22 march 2017 my mother name on id proof is Kamlesh Kumari but in the ticket my name is mentioned as…. kamlesh garg…. is there any problem??
    & i have no id proof of kamlesh garg. pls tell me how i change last name.

    • There will be issues. It is better to contact the airline to seek the remedy. Since Indigo is an LCC it might entertain your request for change of name if you have booked directly with it. At worst, you will have to cancel it and then buy it again.

  39. Hi Team,

    I have lost my PAN Card and i’m only left with passport photocopy. I do have a FIR copy for the PAN. Can you help me with this case.

    Thanks in advance

    • This shall be taken up directly with the airline, if tickets are booked with it or with the agent. That shall be okay but airline has to be informed before the travelling date.

    • Ideally names have to be same in ticket and the valid ID proof. However, airline might admit discrepancies on case to case basis. Please take up your case with the airline.

    • Generally, names shall be same. However, airline might allow it in your case since the ID proof will also be having the Fathers name which would bear the same surname which is in your ticket. So, it shall be okay.

  47. I have a valid id PAN and Aadhar card but my cousin who is travelling with doesnt have any with him. So in such case can e- aadhar considered as a valid document for air travel. Ours is a combined ticket

  48. Hi my name is Amit Kumar Budhwani and i am going with my parents to Goa. But unfortunately while booking my name is written as Amit Budhwani but all my documents it reflect as Amit kumar. Is this is a big problem for me while check in. Please suggest.

  50. My son will complete 3 years 1 month on the date of traveling. But we have only his birth certificate with his name. Is this certificate will be enough for traveling. If yes, is original birth certificate required for this or we can manage with xerox copy.

  79. My wife doesn’t have any photo id so affidavits issued by advocate for her journey so it will consider as I’d proof for airport check in

    • Affidavits are not considered for check in purpose anymore. It would be good if you could take some other ID proof.

    2) I have a 2+ yrs old girl child, for whom I don’t have any id proof yet. Can I use hospital discharge summary (written on their hospital letter pad) on which my wife name is post marriage name?

    3) For my sister, last name is A K (per the voter id card) but due to typo error only K is printed on the ticket. Any possibility of leeway here?

    4) Can we fill in initials in the last name

    5) Can we use ration card or affidavit as a identity proof for any of the above scenarios?

    • yes, marriage certificate can be used but it is only considered as a supporting document for establishing validity of ID. You will have to explain to airline the situation if you have only this as marriage proof.
      You can take hospital discharge summary as well as the child vaccination chart.
      Your sister name can be taken but will have to bring this to the notice of airline.
      Last name shall be as such. If initials appear in end, fill as it is. If initials are in middle, add these along with the first name (with space)
      Neither ration card nor affidavit would work.

    • We would suggest that you speak directly with the airline in this respect. And, while you are speaking to the customer service executive, please do ask them to speak to their senior supervisiors once for this matter. We approached them but got dwindling answers from junior executives. Seniors wanted us to quote the PNR no and other details first. So, we would request you to do it on your own, and do let us know what their response was.

    • Names on ticket and on valid id proofs shall ideally match. If this is not so, then there is a need to speak to airline about it.
