Glass shields at IGI for shorter queues

New Delhi: Days after media reports of long queues being recorded at Indira Gandhi International Airport with passengers having to wait for 10 to 12 hours to get through the immigration process, protective glass shields have been installed at the immigration counters, allowing faster processing of passengers while maintaining social distancing norms.
Sources said around 150 glass shields have been installed, including at the e-visa counters and in both the arrival and departure areas.
Confirming the developments, IGI operator Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) said two people could now safely complete their immigration process at the same time, while also maintaining social distancing norms. DIAL CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar said efficiency levels are expected to improve with the protective shields now in place, allowing more passengers to be processed each hour.

“The safety of everyone working at Delhi airport is paramount to us. As a part of our preparedness for resumption of international commercial service, we have installed glass shields at immigration counters so that two persons can safely complete the process from each counter without compromising their safety,” Jaipuriar claimed.
