Six airports to do away with stamping of baggage

The union government on Thursday initiated a trial run for 'non-stamping' of passengers' baggage tag at the time of boarding the aircraft at six airports.

According to Civil Aviation Minister P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju the trial run at six major airports will facilitate hassle-free movement of passengers with hand baggage.

"This is a very progressive step and will facilitate hassle-free movement of the passengers. This will also bring down the traversal time at the airports," the minister was quoted as saying in a statement.

He elaborated that at the same time, security concerns will continue to get the highest priority to ensure Indian skies are kept safe and vibrant.

The week-long trial run for all domestic passengers was initiated by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) at six airports namely Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
