Flyers to get extra space in airport

This year, flyers will get more space in the city airport.
An airport official said many projects aimed at passenger amenities would be completed in 2018. "Last year, we tried to provide the best possible services to flyers.
There will be no change in approach this year, too," he said.
Soon, new chairs will be installed at the facility. New trolleys are also on the cards.
The extension of the terminal building was done last year. "We had started the work in January, 2017. Besides the arrival and departure gates, the entire structure of the front side of the building has been extended to around six feet," he said.
The airport at present witnesses around 160 flight movements daily. Officials claimed that the new terminal building plan would be the perfect way out.
"Though the project will be completed by 2020-21, the process has started. A consultant — Egis India — has been appointed. We have moved towards going digital with e-boarding pass machines and electronic grievance redressal machines. We are also planning to add more waiting space in the terminal in phases," another official said.
