Five airports to get rid of hand baggage tags soon

Flyers in India may soon be spared the hassle of getting hand baggage tags stamped at security check and flashing them before boarding the aircraft. A pilot project at five airports -Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru -proposes to do away with the tags and if successful, will be replicated at other airports as well.
"This move will enhance passenger experience at airports," said aviation secretary R N Choubey , the man behind the move. The CISF has been told to roll out the project at the earliest. The CISF is responsible for frisking passengers, screening hand bags and stamping boarding cards and cabin baggage tags. Once agencies are satisfied that the move does not compromise security in any way, tagless travel will become the norm, as is the case in western airports.
