GMR’s Hyderabad airport introduces new facility

New Delhi: In order to speed-up the check in procedures, GHIAL has introduced express security check or pre-embarkation security check at RGIA’s terminal’s entry gate for domestic passengers with only hand baggage. The airport has become the first in India to have such a facility.
Coming to the ease of predominantly the corporate and business travellers, who travel with mostly hand baggage,  the new facility is expected to help over 40 pc of total domestic passengers. The peak travelling hours are now expected to witness reduced congestion, while airlines are being expected to improve on their On Time Performance (OTP).
The new facility was inaugurated by OP Singh, director general of Central Industrial Security Force. The airport has installed 10 self check-in machines outside domestic departures, which have been strategically positioned to ease the check in procedure. Passengers can now print their boarding passes from the new self-service-kiosks and enter the Express Security Check lane without getting into the check-in area and head straight towards the boarding area.
Currently the airport handles over 18,000 domestic departure passengers on a daily basis, of which close to 40 pc travel without any checked-in baggage.
