Chennai: AAI to introduce biometric entry system for employees

Chennai: Long queues and chaos for security check at Chennai airport are likely to ease in three months as Airports Authority of India (AAI) is planning to introduce biometric entry system for airline staff and other employees. This will free up at least three to four Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel for passenger duty.
The personnel now deployed at the gate and security check for staff can be deployed after two or three additional counters for passengers are opened. There have been complaints about long queues for security check.
A senior AAI official said, “We are going to make entry of staff through biometric system as per revised guideline of Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS). Trials have been going on. This will free up some personnel who are deployed to man the entry and exit gates used by airline staff, airport staff, employees engaged by retail and food and beverages units and other services at the terminals.”
He said this would be ready in three months. “The biometric system will make staff entry faster. They have to just swipe their fingerprint and walk by. The need to check identity cards will not be there. The CISF may have to post only one constable for supervision.”
AAI installed a few kiosks and conducted trials a couple of months ago. The system is being installed based on the feedback from the trial. The system will have to be uplinked to the servers for processing the staff data.
