Vizag airport records increasing footfall

Visakhapatnam: At a time when people are apprehensive about travelling via a bus or a train, the Visakhapatnam airport registers a sizeable footfall. In the last five months, the airport recorded a steady growth of passengers. In September alone, 794 flight services were operated, wherein 79,727 passengers arrived and departed from Visakhapatnam airport. Strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols, touch-free screening for ticketing, luggage-scanning and boarding along with sanitisation measures carried out at frequent intervals in Visakhapatnam airport appear to draw the attention of the passengers and eventually gain confidence among them.

"Many passengers exude confidence in availing the flight service for obvious reasons. Compliance to safety standards at the airport is one of the prime reasons for the air traffic growth. In October, we are expecting the graph to cross one lakh passengers," says M Raja Kishore, airport director.
