CISF plans quick passage for flyers with just handbags

New Delhi: You may soon be able to zip your way through the congested terminal 1 of Indira Gandhi International airport. The Central Industrial Security Force is planning to have a "dedicated corridor" for passengers flying out of here with handbags only. Based on the lines of its project at Hyderabad Airport, the CISF is planning to have "express security" for passengers with no check-in baggage.
"In Hyderabad we found that as many as 40% of (outbound) flyers have only hand baggage and that it was possible to give them a quick passage by completely bypassing the check-in area for them," CISF director-general O P Singh told TOI Friday. Both the Hyderabad and Delhi airports are operated by the GMR Group.
"In Delhi's terminal 1, 40-50% of (outbound) flyers have only handbags. We have spoken to Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) and they are on board (to replicate the model of Hyderabad airport) to repeat that example in T1. We are exploring the possibility of doing so here very soon by having a dedicated corridor for handbag-only passengers," Singh said.
