Mangaluru International Airport embraces touchless concept for safety



Mangaluru: The airport here, which has employed additional precautionary measures in the interests the passenger safety, has adopted touchless concert. The airport is also turning into a paperless airport to minimise communication between the airport staff and the passengers.

In the past, boarding passes, tickets and documents were to be presented to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel before entering the airport. Now, it is enough if the documents are shown to the person sitting inside the glass counter from outside. The baggage tags are not issued, but sent by SMS.

People not having boarding passes can scan their barcode in the mobile and get printed passes. At the security check counter, the passes should be shown to the cameras. The trays in which the belongings of passengers like mobile phones, purses etc are kept for security check, are not touched by hand. Trays once used are sanitised before reuse.

In the past, the boarding passes were scanned by the airlines staff but now the passengers themselves do it. Boarding passes in mobile may pose problems in scanning. Therefore, it is being printed even now, and otherwise the entire process has become paperless.

The airlines employees use a well-equipped kit for the wheelchair passengers. In the three-seater aircrafts, the passengers in the middle is given body gowns, says Archana, IndiGo station manager.
