New measures to be put in place at Hyderabad airport post lockdown operations

 Hyderabad: Contactless terminal entry and social distancing are among a slew of new operational procedures being put in place at the Rajiv Gandhi International airport here to ensure passenger safety once operations resume post the coronavirus lockdown.
All passengers will be encouraged to use web check-in before arriving at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport while the rest can use CUSS (Common Use Self Service) kiosk before entering the terminal, airport sources said on Tuesday.
The number of CUSS machines on the forecourt have been increased to 19 with the option of contact less usage, the sources added. Contact less terminal entry system is put in place to avoid any possible contact between the CISF personnel and the passengers, they said.
Temperature screening will be done by CISF with automated thermal cameras at all terminal entry points with provision of social distancing markers. Automatic hand sanitizer dispensers at terminal entry points have also been placed, sources said.
"Passenger baggage will be spray coated with chemical disinfectant which evaporates by the time bags reach the passenger on the belt. The mechanism thus ensures that the passenger baggage is thoroughly disinfected from any possible contaminants before it reaches the passenger," they said.
