Trichy airport’s security hold area expanded

Trichy: The security hold area (SHA) at the international airport here has been expanded to ease the congestion felt during peak hours. The area which had a capacity to accommodate only 450 passengers has 120 more seats now which were installed at a cost of Rs 37 lakh.
Airport authorities said passengers can experience a hassle-free journey without any rush from now on. Airport Authority of India’s officiating regional executive director, southern region, V B Chandrakumar inaugurated the expanded facility here on Saturday. The area originally had a seating capacity of only 250, but it was expanded with 200 additional seats by the then airport director B C H Negi a few years ago. The rising international passenger traffic has necessitated further expansion, a senior AAI official said.
“Though 120 more seats have been arranged on the newly expanded security hold area, there is still enough space to accommodate 80 more passengers. That space will also be utilized effectively”, he added.
