Many stranded for an hour after simulated mock drill at Mumbai airport

Mumbai: A simulated mock drill to check emergency preparedness was conducted at Mumbai airport on Saturday morning, which had airline and airport staff along with passengers evacuate the terminal building.

Weekend passengers were stranded for nearly an hour and many vented their ire on social media. Stand-up comic Abijit Ganguly tweeted, ‘If you’re planning to do a mockdrill anywhere, at least have some communication going on as to who’s to do what, go where. The sheer chaos at Mumbai airport right now is crazy and I’m sure a lot of people will miss flight because of it. Absolute crazyness’.

A Mumbai International Airport Ltd spokesperson said a simulated mock drill keeping with security protocol was held at Terminal 2 in collaboration with the airport’s stakeholders. “After all successful assessments and checks, the terminal was declared safe, with the drill completed at 11.48am,” the spokesperson added.
