Two more x-ray machines at airport to manage crowd

Pune:  Flyers’ inconveniences while security check-ins at the Lohegan airport may soon reduce as the facility is set to get two more x-ray scanning machines and additional manpower.
“The rush at the airport is mainly from 9pm till midnight. Two more x-ray machines will be installed. With the help of additional manpower, we should be able to control the situation. We are taking steps to resolve the issue within a week,” airport director Ajay Kumar told TOI.

The airport currently has two entry gates on the city-side. “The number will be increased to three,” he said.

Serpentine queues in security hold areas at night has become an ordeal for several flyers. One of the prime reasons is bunching of many flights in evening and late evening hours. Jaideep Malaviya, who travelled from the airport in the morning on October 4 along with a German delegate, said he and his client had a tough time.
