Customs unit at Gannavaram gets BCAS clearance

Vijayawada: The Customs Preventive Commissionerate (CPC) here secured the clearance of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) for setting up its unit at the Gannavaram airport. It is now awaiting the nod of the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

The CPC has already written to the AAI listing its requirements for the purpose. It even got 32 officers trained at Shamshabad to man the unit. It is now up to the AAI to speed up things as the airport is gearing up to handle more flights and wide-bodied aircraft in the near future.

A CPC team recently met Gannavaram airport director M. Raj Kishore and furnished to him a copy of the layout that was approved by the BCAS. They asked Mr. Kishore to expedite arrangements for establishment of the Customs unit.
